    I enjoyed it though it was a bit long. Great acting kept my attention throughout.

    In the version we saw today, I think there is a good movie in there somewhere, and a couple interesting performances. But this version seemed to need some really good editing. Apparently it had been edited down to 150 minutes (?! there was more?)...however, so much more could\'ve been sacrificed to make a much tighter story. And so many really good actors were wasted in very small roles. So many scenes meant nothing. On writing this I just decided to take my \"vote\" down from 3 stars to 2.
