    Last time I watched this was a blur. The framing device of the screenplay is really good. The flashbacks of coping with who he is works very well. The opening sequence is an interesting epic that I look back fondly upon, feels like Shakespeare or an operatic piece.

    The performances were top notch and the protagonist knocked…
