I watched this movie way back in 1995 on Star Movies. It was not recommended and I was just changing channels when I stumbled upon this movie (luckily). It had just started so I thought I'll just check the start and I couldn't change the channel till it was over. A brilliant movie. The name of the movie struck me. I have a few friends who are movie buffs and I had told them about this movie but they had not seen this movie, I thought it was odd that only I liked this movie. But now after reading all the reviews, I'm glad that there are so many people who appreciate this movie. It really is a movie many have not seen.
What can I say about the movie, it's mesmerizing. Strongly recommended. Just go for it, worth an experience.
