Some time ago, I wrote a comment on the new movie rendition of Les Miserables, while saying quite little about the movie itself.
(Read the original comment over here.)
Well, this review by The New York Times might be of interest to you, completely outside of my ramblings; it sums up my impression of the movie itself pretty well. – Which is, it’s overlong and pompous, but not as bad as other big budget movies I have watched. (And, FTR, if you haven’t seen it yet, go watch The Hobbit! It’s beautiful!)
