[on Dark Blue World (2001)] This film is something of an antidote to many American war films where History is sacrificed on the special effects alter, without the least respect for events or, most especially, for the protagonists.

Trivia:

He refused offers to direct Good Will Hunting (1997), The Cider House Rules (1999), Birthday Girl (2001) and Sweet November (2001). See more »
