This movie is incredible. I'd like to have it on DVD, but still it might take me some decades to watch it again. I've seen it four times in the 80s and 90s when it crept under my skin and stayed there. I remember every scene, yet I wonder what is memory and what was truly shown. Is it really there - or just memory-DVD? Such a simple story, a wayward son meets with a rural guru and gets carried away. I'd like to think that my early access to Gurdieff's writings made this film more accessible and comprehensible to me but even without the guru's ideas I'd get carried away. Awesome work. Two decades after seeing the movie I catch myself thinking about the pig and the birds. Were they properly taken care of? Makes me think why I like Predator and South Park. Why did I originally give it 9 pts? Must reconsider and give it full marks.
