It’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.
