This film is fine despite being butchered in the editing process
18 May 2001 | by (Texas,formerly Newport RI) – See all my reviews

This is a film that simply must be restored. Approx. 1/3 of it's footage was left on the cutting room floor. If it seems incoherent at times, that's why. Even in it's truncated condition, it's a fine, moody piece and holds together surprisingly well. How many other movies could we say that about?
