An all-time favorite of mine!
4 August 2007 | by (johnboland@earthlink.net in Kennewick, WA) – See all my reviews

I happened to see this when it first appeared on TV, and I was never able to forget it. The scene when Bendix falls asleep again, and finally dies in 1941, and the scene fades fades to a highly disturbed psychiatrist sitting next to an empty couch still gives me goosebumps, even as I write this.

What an incredible work.
