do not get reference, but it sounds like you do not recommend either.
I loved this movie. have watched it countless times
I liked it, kinda typical Lasse Hallström movie, and I really enjoy his films
The Thin Red Line
The Great Escape
The Big Red One
None of those are Vietnam War movies.
Watched the last two movies from the Millenium Trilogy.
#2 was OK, but #3 was great. Some scary characters and well done... I normally don't like sub-titled movies, but...
I positively hated "The Man Who Would Be King"! It completely subverted the whole point of the Kipling story. However, that it would do so is unsurprising.
On another note, I saw "Mud" last night. Excellent movie, if a little on the long side.
Go Tell the Spartans
Caught the newly restored Safety Last at the Film Forum. This is a great print with the extra footage that cleans up the edit and makes it more watchable for a modern audience. One of the best physical comedies ever made and worth seeing on the big screen.
