Re: “Ben-Hur

I get a kick out of Dave Kehr. I usually admire his work but he does enjoy rocking the Hollywood boat from time to time. What I love about this film is its boldness. Its grandeur and high drama (I can't call it melodrama because the story is so lofty) gets me every time. From the first frame to the last this film is letting you know that it is a work of art. Sure it's long and Wyler takes his time and lets his actors act, often times without words at all. Whether you believe in this story of the Christ or not, you can't call on eo f our greatest entertainments of all time "boring." Get the newest DVD and enjoy yourself. We may never see a movie this spectacular again.
