Ride with the Devil: This 1999 civil war film by Ang Lee apparently went mostly unseen and unheralded when it was released. That's a shame--if it isn't a masterpiece, I'd wager it comes awfully close. The cast is brilliant, including Jeffrey Wright as a particularly standout, but even Jewel, hardly a master thespian, is acceptable in her role. The period atmosphere is detailed and spot on. And the gorgeous cinematography and a tasteful score perfectly capture the film's mood.
