James Harvey's "Sorrow of the Soldier"

Just wanted to post a little response to the thread Amid started over at Cartoon Brew on James Harvey's "Sorrow of the Soldier".  Several visitors to the blog commented on a supposed lack of sophistication in the message and form of the film.  It's really unfortunate that the focus would be on these things instead of on the ambition of Mr. Harvey to effect a positive change.  Idealism in any form deserves a little breathing space, especially when it's as heartfelt as this.  Oh, and by the way, it is a very visually accomplished film to boot.  Watch it here.
