It's been a rather disappointing year of movie watching. But I have to say that I really did enjoy Mongol. If you haven't seen it, and don't mind a bit of blood, I can't recommend it enough. It's a simple story, but a fascinating one, with some really bleak humour and nicely choreographed battle scenes.
It may be my favourite movie of the year - am certainly regretting not seeing it at the cinema.
