Next, it is important to read a biography of Kurosawa, to establish where I got my info in a previous thread. I'm into 'The Art of War' by Sun-Tzu, myself.

Well the ending is still silly. Eastwood should have emerged from the smoke guns blazing and decked out in a full Ned Kelly (a stupidly revered Australian bushranger) outfit.

John.

I think I've seen all of Tarkovsky's films, plus read his book. Can't say I'm much of a fan, tho. But I did enjoy Nostalgia. He certainly has a loyal fan base.

Ned Kelly's "Jerildarie Letter" addressed to the people of Australia in 1879:

Port McQuarrie Toweringabbie Norfolk Island and Emu plains in those places of tyranny and condemnation many a blooming Irish man rather than subdue to the Saxon yoke were flogged to death and bravely died in servile chains.

Is that the one?

Best Regards,
TerryO

Yes Terry, I believe you're right! And you guys need it. Lovely folks up there, dismal weather.

My sig is just a riff on the old Python Australian philosophers sketch. "I drink, therefore I am."
I thought it was pretty clever. =)

Reading the posts about Private Ryan (which also brought war movie sound to a new realism (when you saw a MP40 you heard a real MP40)) brings Band of Brothers (mini series) to mind. Anal retentive producers having the veterans from the battles at the filming to make sure its real. As close as your going to get to being there (even more than Private Ryan). A must see for anyone whos thinking about "joining up".
