DVD: Cold Mountain

I watched the DVD Cold Mountain last night. I found the movie was a bit long, and the scene changes got a bit tedious. But overall it is an interesting movie. It is set in the war-torn South during the civil war. You get a real feel for the emotional upheaval during the time. While the level of violence wasn't as strong as Saving Private Ryan, there was still quite a bit of graphic violence. There is a lot of value to the DVD version: the second disk has quite a bit of cut scenes. In spite of the final movie's length, the cut scenes add a lot of value. There is a lot in the deleted scenes linking the characters even more completely. You get an even deeper understanding of the deaths of others that the male hero experiences.
