Often when people write reviews of older films one of the criteria that comes up is how well the film has aged, this film was released in US just one day before i was born and i would consider myself lucky if i age half as well, theme of voyeurism that this film deals with will remain relevant till the end of the human race. It is stirs up those element of the human psychic without been preachy or should i say in Hollywood style . So, we have lots of skin show, an excellently done murder sequence, a hero that just about manages to set things right and a "Eargasmic" background theme composed by Pino Donaggio. So grab the popcorn & enjoy Jake Scully's ride !
