User Review

A Great Movie

Rating: 10/10

This is a great movie with amazing actors.
One suggestion for all the people who give it a bad review: Rent the DVD and
listen to the track with the directors commentary (the full length movie).
What I read so far on reviews, including the official ones from all the
Siskel and Eberts, they seem to misunderstand the movie. They are criticizing
exactly what the director did on purpose.
Watch the movie – watch the commentary version – watch the movie again. It is
a great experience.
