“OLD, WEIRD AMERICA”: Orrin Judd looks at Gods and Generals in two posts here and here. (The astonishing quote above though, is courtesy of Greil Marcus.)

I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I did get a kick out of Ted Turner, searching to find an anti-war message in his own film–a film about the war the ended slavery. It’s unlikely that this fellow and Ted will ever meet, but they ought to.

UPDATE: Rod Dreher also weighs in (start here, and then scroll down to the post below), along with an excerpt of the Village Voice’s not-surprisingly condescending take on the film.
