davidehrlich’s review published on Letterboxd:
how is a colonialist epic about a tormented sadist with a twinkle in his eyes so universally beloved?" ... best not to answer that.
what i find most amazing about Lean's masterpiece is that such a politically thorny, morally vague 228-minute film about a man's grand-scale psychic collapse has become such a celebrated movie, regarded as a treasure by EW and the the intelligentsia alike.
i should probably say a little something about the 4K DCP presentation, but... i'm sleepy. maybe later.
