Re: 300

From a reader:

Dear Jonah,   I saw  300 earlier this year, before all the effects  and music was in place. The imagery is straight from the comic, but the acting of the leads is superb (if you can get past physical specimens that look like the front cover to “The Advocate”). It is a fairly unsubtle, and propagandistic rebuke to the middle east and their assault on wester culture. It’s an allegory to what may come soon, and how we need belligerance  and courage to face up to those that wish to preserve our way of life.  A few scenes with a high creep factor, but a very strong and tightly directed film. Look forward to watching it again when it is done. It’s not for everyone, and I expect  VDH to be less than thrilled with how fast and loose it plays  with some of the History, as it’s sort of a Shakespearan treatment of history. But it is very entertaining.   [Namewithheld]   Please withold my name. (and fix any typos :-))
