So, yesterday I introduced young son to the best swashbuckling movie made in the last 35 years. I saw this movie shortly before I left for basic training and I was mesmerized by it. I've seen it over and over again since then and although not everyone (or anyone) seems to have the same appreciation for it that I do it was fun to watch it with him and see him enjoying it too. It is semi-historical and somewhat prophetic in its treatment of the conflict between the West and Islam and the swaggering attitude of the U.S. in its refusal to accept bad behavior on the part of bad people. The movie? Wind and the Lion.
Tomorrow we may sit down to watch 'The Wild Geese'.
