Good Fortune!
17 February 2000 | by (Vancouver, BC CANADA) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to have seen this film in a theatre. I'd read the book recently, and the film was quite illuminating in many respects. Unfortunately, it was a very literal interpretation of dream logic. The soundtrack, however, was absolutely first rate and evocative of the book. (Why wouldn't it be, actually; after all, it WAS the book!)

An abridged version was released on disk IN STEREO, and it was a treasure. I only hope that when and if this brave folly is ever preserved on DVD, it will incorporate the stereo audio, even though I doubt that it was ever presented in stereo theatrically.
