Using the esoteric church-and-state politics and primitive medical treatments of the time as a counterpoint, Olmi makes the argument that warfare is the only thing that has gotten exponentially worse as it has become more sophisticated. And yet I’d be lying if I didn’t say that Profession Of Arms hooked me mostly on the aesthetic level. The sense of gritty, smoky texture it brings to the period is very original.
