Re: Cold Mountain
Haven't seen Cold Mountain yet, but expect I will when the DVD is released.
Seriously, do you expect Hollywood to be authentic in ways that matter? For some films, perhaps, and maybe for Cold Mountain too, but witness the abominable outrage that is Torque, for example, as an illustration of what can go wrong in the name of "selling the picture". Authentical it ain't.
I'd be more interested to know what you make of contemporary British films set in areas where the accents are pronounced (i.e east London, Liverpool, Glasgow, etc.). Do British actors usually "get it right"? How about American (or Aussie, say) actors and their efforts at fabricating an authentic English accent? How do they measure up?
