I cried again
4 September 2000 | by (Baysie, New York) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie for possibly the ninth time today(Labor Day). It never fails to move me in the way it portrays two lonely people (who could be the flip sides of every person)who meet and fulfill and antagonize each other at the same time. I think that this is one of the best films I have ever seen in my life. I wish I could tell the writer of this film how much it means to me. The entire picture, from its writing, to its filming and acting is top notch. I wouldn't change a thing about it. I love every thing about it. I have read many reviews of this film and some of them have some things right and others are completely wrong. This is a film that says so much about lonliness, neediness, and friendship. I wish everbody could see it.
