Saturday/ my Hail Caesar! highlights

We watched Hail, Caesar! (2016) last night, a Coen brothers movie – and a movie I suspect, that is liked better by film buffs and critics, than the average movie-goer.   For me the highlights were : the ‘water ballet’ performed by the Aqualilies, the sailors’ dance number featuring Channing Tatum, and the Russian submarine scene.   And : I know I should not romanticize war, but I love the Echelon Song that played out the movie as the credits rolled, sung by the Red Army Choir (also known as the Battle of the Red Guards, written in 1933).
