"How does Brundlefly eat?"
I let a random number generator select what movies I watch.
I may be overrating this. I suspect that I am. The gorgeous 3-Strip Technicolor photography and the attention to detail in the production design pretty much garnish this generation-spanning epic with one hundred dollar bills. It's really quite dazzling and may have struck me down with BIG IMPORTANT DRAMA syndrome. It feels to me like epic dramas such as this were churned out regularly in the early 90s and they are great movies but I cut my cinematic teeth on these movies and can't separate them from youthful nostalgia on my part.
