Thanks to ADJL000 (what a moniker!) for mentioning *The Field*, which
I think is *absolutely* brilliant and that rare thing, a true modern
*tragedy*. I had never thought terribly highly of Richard Harris' acting,
but he's *magnificent*, as is the entire cast. Yes, do read the Cuchulainn
myths (or at least Yeats on same) before seeing the film, but most particularly
the material having to do with Cuchulainn and Mananaan (to say anything more
would constitute a *spoiler*). Truly a must, must see.
