The Historian

The Historian (2014) PosterIt’s not often than academic politics are the subject of a movie, and I’m not sure “The Historian” entirely succeeds.  Still, here’s a film with a top drawer cast and an eery-thriller cadence, that was written, directed by, and stars a Latin professor at the University of Southern Mississippi.  So there’s certainly an air of truth, as well as clear self-congratulations.

If learning, knowledge, and wisdom, plus where these fit into the ‘real’ world, intrigue you, I bet this film will, too.  If you watch it, let me know what you think.

  2. Thanks, Rena. I will note this and try to see it sometime. We do not watch films very often. Right now are deep into the Great Courses Series of Everyday Life in the Ancient World.
