The Treat is a masterpiece!
20 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the best film I've ever seen! Nothing is predictable. It's very beautiful- it's very full of ideas. It's not like a normal movie which plays on one or two levels- the treat is multi- layered. Sometimes what seems to be a joke is serious, and what seems at first to be serious is a joke. I watched the movie over 50 times and i'm still not bored with it. I've turned a lot of my friends onto it and now they are hooked on it too! You definitely need to see this film several times to get it. This movie will get a huge cult following I imagine in the future. It's like The Velvet Underground meets The Doors of the movies! Comic, poetic and timeless.
