Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Only Ken Burns would make a four-hour documentary about the Lewis & Clark expedition. Only Ken Burns could make every minute of that movie fascinating. In describing the various moments of surprise, joy, and dread along the way, Burns takes these abstract figures from the history books and makes them become real people as if we had traveled with them, and makes the breadth of their achievement clear. The movie is full of awe-inspiring photography of the American plains and northwest, a land that we know better today but get a chance to see anew through these explorer's eyes. I highly recommend this movie, which is no problem to watch in sections.
