Amazing! Colossal! And it’s good, too. “Gone With the Wind” is a tempest in a teacup compared to this jaw-dropping adaptation of the Tolstoy classic: seven hours of artful splendor, passionate characters, map-altering politics and the biggest, most spectacular battle scenes ever filmed. Sergei Bondarchuck has it all under control; the new restoration gives Soviet show color and clarity we’ve never seen before. Four parts, two discs, no waiting. Cover charge may apply. On Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
