When I watched this film I was really struck by the way it caught your attention immediately in the opening scenes of the film. The way the two friends were riding along together in the car just like any other friends would but yet you still felt uneasy and you weren't quite sure why. i remember watching it and almost double guessing myself in wondering if I should be feeling uncomfortable or if it was just me. By the time they actually did get to "the garden" I definitely then felt justified in my perceptions but then a whole bunch of questions came up. I really enjoyed how the filmmaker gave you enough information to feel like you were in on the story but yet not fully in on the secret. I think this film made a bold statement about communism and to its denial of human freedom. I think this is a film you could watch over and over again and catch something that you did not catch before and make you think of something you didn't think of before. i think that truly is film making at its best.
