I'm sure there's some peculiar reason for this film film to be lambasted by a particular sort of fellow, but I'm really tired of those fellows. I wish there were a way to click a "hide spittle-flecked rants" toggle.

Alas. Not available.

This beautiful piece of work should be shown in classrooms if only to provide a break from the monotony of formal education and give even the most alienated young American a glimpse into a world not unlike our own-- and parallel to it. Where guys-- just guys like you and me-- found themselves having to act with dreadful nobility during a hateful stretch of misery while, all the while, wearing silly clothing. Pomp and circumstance and stovepipe hats and rivulets of blood and men in stifling wool uniforms blown apart by rifled musketry and women wearing linen tents like trade shows for textile millers...

Damn all war to hell. Hats off for Mr. Lincoln. Amen.

(If you liked this review, you'll like the movie. If not, skip it. There. Surely THAT was HELPFUL.)
