EXCELLENT MOVIE! Highly recommended!
12 March 2004 | by (Denver, Colorado, United States) – See all my reviews

I cannot believe how some critics or people want to rate this movie bad or think they can judge it poorly in their ignorant understanding of it. Are people today just scared or turned off by any kind of real or tender feelings or understanding of depth in life and emotion? It seems those that did not think good about this movie does. This was one of the very best movies I have ever seen, right up there with all my other favorites. The feeling and atmosphere was awesome and touching and the acting by Jeff was the very best he has ever done and everyone that saw the movie with me thought so as well. Many will never understand this movie and I feel very sorry for you that you do not. This is a classic that is underrated. I have seen it MANY times and can totally relate. Do not think you understand something when you do not because you have no place or business even thinking you do and giving it a false negative rating. I bought this digital video disc as soon as it was released. It was much better than most of the critically acclaimed movies and the music soundtrack was very good, which helped the movie a lot. Kudos to the director who took the risk to tell it like it is. Thank you.
