What are the chances all the questions that came up corresponded CHRONOLOGICALLY with events from his life. The answer for the first question he learns when he was a little kid and the next when he was a bit older and so on... It doesn't make sense to me. Torture the skinny little cheater till he tells the real story. I think the host was in on it also, he has the face of a game show cheater. More waterboarding almost never hurt anyone Final answer.

We originally watched this in high school English and I thought it would just be another boring movie we're forced to watch... boy was I wrong. It's beautiful! The story, the impact, the clothes.. everything. It's an amazing film.

This is a great film! Most Hollywood movies are the same formula stories being retold with new actors, but still the same old story. This film is a new story performed by great actors and told in a brand new way. In one word...AWESOME!
