excellent!
14 September 2003 | by rockpanrecordsSee all my reviews

if anything, george c scott's perfomance here is as exceptional as the patton movie, but deeper, and much more revealing. actually, an exceptional cast all around, this film while it may seem to drag a little, was superbly done. highly recommended.
