today i watched miracle at st. anna. i have many thoughts, and thought i'd share them in a brief fashion:
why didn't this movie receive all the life like war acclaim that saving private ryan did? race?
dave chappelle/david alan greer black actor theory - cast of the wire + remember the titans - okay, a little bigger than that, but still, a lot of the same faces.
germans speaking german, italians speaking italian. how novel for a war movie.
germans using the idea that "terrorists" (partisans) not protected by geneva convention - very familiar
same prayer in multiple languages great touch
spike lee's best movie to date
