In 'Ride With The Devil' the Boundaries Between North and South and Slave and Free Blur | 13 May 2010 // 10:51 PM
Ride With The Devil is a film that resists narrative convention. The audience is not enlisted to help solve any problem, there is no end to the war, no intended destination, and it’s not clear for whom we should be rooting.

Ride With the Devil dares to bring yet another version. Directed by Ang Lee and written by Lee and his usual collaborator James Schamus (who adapted Daniel Woodrell's novel Woe to Live On, a novel inspired, says the author, by today's warfare in the Balkans), the film is rather surprising, and not only because it stars Jewel as a Southern widow. Telling stories that don't usually get told, Ride With the Devil focuses on some of the War's more disgraceful and outrageous aspects, both personal and public.
