Movies: The 13th Warrior and language barriers portrayed

I saw this movie when it came out. I really love Banderas. We bought the movie, but I only re-watched it a time or two. Now comes Tor's electronic newsletter, with an amusing skewering of inaccuracies and a love letter to the film craft, particularly regarding language barriers. Now I want to watch it again! (And of course I adore The Hunt for Red October.)

For Melebeth, particularly, and others who appreciate the arts of language, acting, and filmmaking. Don't worry, it's a short article.
