The Civil War

Ken Burns, 1990, tv, 12 hrs (9.1*)
Ken Burns set a new style and standard for tv documentaries with this multi-part documentary based largely on still photographs, maps, and interviews with historians, authors, other experts. The series immediately becomes addictive for all history buffs, whether interested in the Civil War or not. Burns establishes a style he later used on a history of jazz music, another on baseball, finally one on World War II. Terrific stuff, not to be missed.

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
