We are watching one of my favorite movies tonight in class. It is a crazy masterpiece by a writer/director who has amazing craft. And it based on Greek military history, as recounted by Xenophon in Anabasis.
Here is a terrific article on a New Bev showing of this cult film that all your favorite directors love.
And here's the link to rent it for $2.99 on YouTube, because you know you now want to go make all your friends watch it!
