"As for naming 3 recent epics:  it seems to me that these days attempts at
epics seem largely to be biopics (call it the "Pale-Imitation-of-Lawrence-
of-Arabia Syndrome"), so I'd add "Hoffa," and "Chaplin." But the only film
I've seen in the last decade that I actually think of as an epic is the
director's cut of "Once Upon a Time in America." "
GANDHI would probably count in that way as well.
