Deep Vulcan MindMeld for Intelligent Adults,

August 7, 2006
Johnny Depp
Wow! Johnny Depp, whom I first got to know when I took my kids to Pirates of the Caribbean, is a SHAKESPEARE level actor.

This is a supremely intelligent movie for very smart people that appreciate nuances. It is NOT an X-rated movie in disguise. A few (very few) exposed breasts, but some of the human choreography is reminiscent of Leonardi da Vinci, extremely tasteful and NOT pornography in any way.

This movie held my attention. It aroused a passionate empathetic appreciation of loyalty to life, liberty, wife, love, king, and country. Johnny Depp plays a very complex man, and the nuances of this movie have to be seen to be appreciated.

A keeper. I plan to buy it now that I have rented it.
