One of my favorite movies.
I was just organizing my DVDs and spotted this one in my Stanley Kubrick collection. I need to rewatch this one. I remember thinking, 'well Stanley can't hit a homerun every time.' When the movie was over I felt like I had live a good portion of this guy's life. Great movie.
A good reminder that duels are often "damned if you do, damned if you don't". And that killing nobility and gentry, anyone of stature and position, will leave a whole lot of people starving, bereft, and out of work.Actions, even those justified with good cause, have consequences, many of them unintended.
