posted at 3/4/2011 2:40 PM ESTYou have to see this. The 5 1/2 hr version (recommended) is free onDemand via the Sundance channel (assuming you have ComCast ). While the King's Speech is good (and a little overrated), this movie is far better; the best of the past several years, IMO. It is done in 6 languages (kudos to the actors,especially Rodriguez) , is a biography and history lesson, and when they whiz around the world it doesn't have that plastic James Bond veneer. Great writing, directing and performances by even the minor characters; must have been high budget.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxActually, it's more than 6 languages. The languages are French, German, Spanish, English, Arabic, Russian, Hungarian (difficult), & Japanese; often in mid-sentence.Obviously, I'm a fan.
