Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Gandhi (1982)

Directed by Richard Attenborough

Starring Ben Kingsley, Candice Bergen, Edward Fox, John Gielgud


A seemingly accurate depiction of Gandhi and his life, but long and slow. One of the problems with being historically accurate is that you run the risk of being boring and non-dramatic. I wonder if something could have been chopped or tightened up.

Kingsley was a perfect choice. Great job with the old age make-up and mannerisms.
