    the way that scripture was used. Folks, see this film. It is not just compelling, it is a work of art. Several times I thought of Apocalypse Now and Aguirre. Yes I think it is that good. unlike those two films though, there is an emotional component; you care about the characters. The cast is simply outstanding, the soundtrack, cinematography, and recreation of plantation life are all topnotch. Every actor gives a top flight performance. Quite simply put, nothing else out there really compares. Some sequences are downright horrifying. Bring some tissues if you go.
