I'm so torn on that movie. For one, it pokes holes in the "morality play" narrative of the War Between The States in its own way. That's good; people can respond better to a movie than some thick, Southern nationalist book I offer them.That said, the character I most respect and agree with is Bill Cudding, and the Jacobins ranged from "obnoxious" to "museum quality damnyankee."Scorsese is truly one of the great American filmmakers, though, regardless of how I may view his body of work, or the individual parts thereof.
Good review. Thanks.
