Okay, I give up.
I’ve spent more time on this review than any other review save The Passion of the Christ. It’s been a challenge. And I’m considering my posted review a work-in-progress, as there are so many nit-picky reviews of this movie out there. I don’t want to be merely redundant when it comes to the factuality (or non-factuality) of the movie. I want to focus on the spirit of the whole affair… what it is, and what it could have been.
So, let me know what you think, in comments or via email. I may continue to revise it for a while, until I get sick of the whole thing.
