A much better movie about the South during the Civil War than “Gone with the Wind”--visionary, erotic, and tragic where the older movie is flossy, merely ambitious and self-important. [22 & 29 December 2003, p. 166]

Looks splendid and commands respect, but leaves you wondering what essential something you missed. It's a worthy film at war with itself.
