i decided not to watch this one... knowing it will be "slow and classic"...!
i wanted to leave my impression of tolkien as i know him - from the long extras in Lord of The Rings (found on the BD's).
in those documentaries, a lot was shown about his life, his service in WWI, how all his friends died the war...
how the war horrors came to his writing of LOTR, e.g. what Isengard, Saruman and the orcs' destructive nature stood for in the modern world.
still remember a lot of it....
That is why this movie beautifully done.
Not by beautifying war, and I am alibiing here, how Tolkien's psyche survive the War to End All War by processing the War into Fantasy, which became his works... Am I making sense.
You will be surprise who inspired the "Sam's" character. The "British" sense of "duty"
Sorry you have decided NOT TO watch this.This post has been edited by Mov_freak: Aug 21 2019, 10:06 AM
