Intense
25 December 2002 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

One of the most intense and depressing movies ever made. It rivals "The Deerhunter" in that regard. The growing feeling of hopelessness as the Greek captives embark on their last journey produced cries from the audience toward the end of film.
