Great idea to reach authentic reality, overcoming technical limitations of the time. The only (subjective) beef: when my attention concentrated on the colour, I couldn't care less about the suffering, the corpses in a ditch, the blood. It just becomes a colorful landscape, which sorta negates the purpose. If I concentrated on the story, I completely forgot about the coloring they made (which killed their work) and wanted better story coverage (which is pretty sketchy). And - the 'accents'. If it had been all brit, whatever, I'd loved it. The 'accents' spoiled it beyond repair. Instead of a true story - another puppet theatre. I an profoundly sorry.
