I have seen this movie about 6 times and each time I do feel a deeper appreciation for it. This movie is a master piece filled with great acting, strong dialogue, great shot locations, film direction, editing, and much more. To refer to this film as anything but a master piece would be incorrect. This in my opinon is the best movie ever made. I don't say that lightly because I have seen great works of art such as Godfather one and two, Roman Holiday, look who's coming to dinner, casablanca and ordinary people. I am also under the distinct impression that of all movies i have seen the best opening to any movie is Ghandi. Over 400,000 extras were in the first scene paying homage to Ghandi as his dead body lay covered in roses. They even quote one of the most brilliant minds ( Einstein ) as of having said something to the extent that " Generations from now man will struggle to believe a man such as Ghandie walked the face of the earth" or something like that. GREAT FILM!
