Was “Glory” supposed to be funny? I had a few readers telling me that the film plays as a comedy, but it feels like a serious foreign take on the early 90s movie “Hero”. While I guess the time is now for Eastern Europe to play around with PoMo versions of dis-enlightenment. Still, it’s weird to see PR figures elevated to the status of discerning what matters for society. If you have the time, check out the Oscar winning short “Helium” on the special features. It plays far better than the main feature.
