Thomas Edison's "Kinetoscopic Record of a Sneeze" is truly the "Star Wars" of the 1800s... This ground-breaking masterpiece literally blew me away. I stared in awe at the sneeze, for the visual effects were just magnificent... with moving images and all. Story wise, this is also quite a masterpiece. Who could have thought of anything more brilliant than a sneeze! Anyhow, this movie was meant to be watched over and over again, and trust me, you'll never grow tired of this one. A true collector's item!
