Classic Movie of the Week|
OnM - July 13, 2002
Being an anarchist myself, I have the fortunate ability (yay, me!) to just enjoy a good story without the need to always weight it down with political baggage, and this, dear readers, is a wonderful story, wonderfully told and presented in glorious cinematic form. It is true that there are some melodramatic aspects to the presentation, but they are very unapologetic, and deserve to be-- this is a big, sweep-you-up in the moment kind of movie, and despite running somewhat over two hours in length, the film never drags or bogs down as the story moves forward.
