Another non HDR item added by Amazon. I think they have given up with HDR.

You couldn’t be clean shaven in this Movies era. Would be considered female if no facial hair.

Though I am yet to see this film the subject does fit into Mel Gibson's obsession with intellectual complexity.
Sean Penn is also a highly intelligent guy, I'm sure that the two actors working together would have got the insanity bit to a realistically high level and had a few late nights working the script too.

Thanks for the Review Cas. I will definitely catch this.
Can't help thinking of the Blackadder episode "Ink & Incapability" where Dr. Samuel Johnson (Robbie Coltrane) asks the Regent for his patronage for writing his Dictionary :D

The trouble is once Mel Gibson has had a few sherries his obsession with intellectual complexity goes right out of the window.At that point the only dictionary needed to understand his language is the urban one.

Watched it some months ago, good movie and cast.
Film works for me, enjoy anything history related (loosely) pinch of salt.......
Gibson and that beard must have some off another set :)

7/10 again....

I too watched this a long while back and really quite enjoyed it. It's a rainy Sunday afternoon film and taking that into account it's an 8/10 from me.

Can I just add, Sausage :thumbsup:
