I'm quickly realizing that there are some unbelievably good foreign films out there (I own about a half-dozen now). My wife and I rented Dark Blue World from Blockbuster this weekend. It is one of the best epic war movies that I've ever seen and a very fine DVD release. The cinematography was amazing and the Dolby Digital 5.1 mix was stunning. I felt as if there really were Spitfires and BF-109s flying through my living room! In case you haven't heard of it, Dark Blue World is about Czech fighter pilots who fought for the RAF during World War II. In addition to an amazing history lesson, it was one of the best war screenplays I've ever seen and was wonderfully acted and directed. Most of the movie is in Czech with English subtitles. It has the best aerial combat scenes in any film, ever. You'd think that you were seeing very high-quality historical film of the real thing. Even though I just saw it a couple of days ago, I'm gonna buy this DVD tonight and watch it again. Hey Ron -- if you haven't seen it yet, may I suggest a review! You won't be disappointed!!! I think that this qualifies as the sleeper hit of 2001. It has my unqualified recommendation.
