You mean “painful” as in you didn’t like the movie?

Or ‘painful’ seeing our country torn to pieces, people being predatory and savage to their neighbors, folks starving to death, the brutality of Man… that kind of painful? The Siege of Vicksburg/Battle of the Crater made me want to throw up…. and I’ve seen some heinous sh*^ in my day…

The book blew me away. I read it before seeing the movie.

The movie was pretty good. Nominated for something like 7 Academy Awards… it wasn’t meant to have a happy ending…

The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
