Viewing Notes

Filling a huge hole in my movie watching history by finally knocking this off my list. Holy hell is it long! But a great movie and not entirely what I was expecting. Scarlett is such a strong but unlikable character, yet you can’t help but admire everything she goes through, even though so much of it is self-inflicted.

It reminded me a lot of GIANT, another expansive melodrama.
