    Sounds boring, but it's anything but.

    Unlike other documentaries, Gettysburg is short on archival still photography from the battlefield, but that's because, for once, it isn't needed. The re-enactments are dramatic and horrifically convincing all by themselves.

    Gettysburg aims for a mix of entertainment and information. It's not a bull's-eye, but it's a decent shot.

    While the interviewees here can look back and put pieces together, fragmentation and lack of focus may be Gettysburg's most authentic effect.
