Doing Our Readers a Disservice

RECEIVED Tue., Aug. 30, 2005

Dear Editor,
    I saw The Great Raid on Sunday. In my view it is a riveting human drama with powerful historical clarity. This is a compelling war movie presented in a realistic context with excellent supporting use of original film. Perhaps the best war movie I've seen, it is easily worth four stars. Your reviewer's immature assessment of this fine movie does your readers a disservice [Film Listings, Aug. 12].
