Fresh: Be sure to watch "The Wind That Shakes The Barley" if you watch "Michael Collins"

Fresh: Neil Jordan uses very broad and movie-ish strokes to paint his portrait of the busy, eponymous hero.

Makes for a better entertainment than a history lesson; episodic but effective.

A brave, bold and fair portrayal of a very controversial historical figure - he isn't held in high regard by many but he is a very influential character in recent history and his story is told well here. The production is awesome, in my opinion it is only the casting that lets it down but not in every case, Aidan Quinn and Stephen Rea were great as is Liam Neeson although he's not particularly convincing as a 31 year old.
