It definitely has something the masterpieces lack...
8 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I saw it only once several years ago, probably 1999 or 2000... (Today - 2007 - I finally succeeded to find and order a DVD copy and expect to get my hands on it in a couple of days.) I remember that my TV was on, set to one of the movie channels I had in my satellite package. I didn't expect much but soon found myself unable to take my eyes off. I fully agree with other, more eloquent reviewers here - the soundtrack and its blending is definitely a masterpiece. To this day, I have never experienced anything close to it when watching a movie. Amazing.

I think that movies are like wine - it all depends on one's state of body and mind. Sometimes it gets you, sometimes not. But as far as I can judge from other reviews here this movie does has something that got so many people who were lucky to stumble on it one way or another.
