That the writer-director, Philip Kaufman, is able to get so much into a little more than three hours is impressive. That he also has organized this material into one of the best recent American movies is astonishing.

Rarely has such an epic film -- in length, at more than three hours, and in scope, spanning decades -- been handled with such remarkable spareness.
