This is really quite a film.

 

On first viewing, it became for me a proud companion to a group of epics that includes Lawrence of Arabia, Gandhi, and perhaps Spike Lee’s Malcolm X.  Like those films, it seems at once to traverse the globe and to traverse the heart of an amazingly complex historical person.  In each of these films, there is a view of the central figure that is so wide-angle that it seems we are looking at countless sides of the person at one time.  Films with this kind of view are rare but thrilling.  They seem to capture something of what it means to be a person.
