If you want to sit through 2.5 hours of mindless left-wing propaganda, then this is the film for you. What is with the swearing, especially in a time when people had much better manners than today? Period movies should never be tainted with or have any correlation to the situation today. A truly good period film just portrays the time for what it was and not through the lens of current events or political ideology. Spielberg hasn't made a good movie since Schindler's List.
