Well, Ken Burns has always been a draw for Public Television and rediscovering “The Civil War” shows why. The material will be boring for younger people, but this was the first solid effort to humanize such a storied topic. While we’ve come quite a way in documentary narrative since 1990, there are several “cute” moments that show where the initial audience connection was made. But, it’s still weird to view a historical document as a meta historical document.
The early DVD screener I was sent had no special features, but we’ll have a full-form Blu-Ray review coming in the next two weeks.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
