Top notch flick!
26 April 2003 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

See it if you can find it. Great cast, writing, plot, photography. I saw it years ago and it's stuck with me since. There's not many films that do that. I was pleasantly surprised to see Shelley Winters in such a small role at a time when she was so highly regarded as an actress. I think the unique way the plot unfolded was what stuck with me. Amazing yet simple thought process the writer displays.
