Red Cliff, John Woo (2008-2009)

What do you do on days when the dictates of the medical industrial complex and/or your own rebellious body require you to spend the entire day on the sofa? I watch movies, and the best kind of movies to watch on these days must meet two criteria: They need to be very engaging and accessible; and they need to be really, really long. I used to deploy Tora! Tora! Tora! for this purpose on a fairly regular basis, but I’ve seen it too many times, so I went with this. If you get the Asian release, it comes in two parts, it’s more than four hours long, and it totally does the trick.
