And though I had slain a thousand foes less one,
The thousandth knife found my liver;
The thousandth enemy said to me,
'Now you shall die,
Now none shall know.'
And the fool, looking down, believed this,
Not seeing, above his shoulders, the naked stars,
Each one remembering.
--John M. Ford, The Final Reflection

So I Just Watched...

Gone With The Wind.

And, despite all the accolades and praises this movie has gotten, the only thing I can bring myself to say about it is that...well, it starts off dreadfully BORING. Don't get me wrong, business picks up after the first hour or so, but it starts off so slowly that I almost fell asleep. And I know a lot of fans of this movie will be very displeased with this comment and will likely be attempting to argue with me about how the first part of it is anything but dull, and this is what I have to say to them:

Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.
