Hero

Saw it today.

Wow. It was (perhaps) the most beautiful movie I've ever seen. Simply amazing. Surprisingly deep and nuanced. Powerful.

On whether or not it was an apology for fascism: yes, I think it was. So be it. But, it had a lot more to say than just that, and had perhaps one of the most shockingly powerful moments of non-violence I've ever seen on film.

In its defense, though, it was a fairy tale set in a violent time. I think that the average citizen of the latter Roman Empire might also have thought that fascism wasn't such a bad thing (given the alternatives), but fortunately, we live in better times.
