Haunting history of a seemingly mundane subject
12 February 2002 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

I first viewed this film by default, since nothing else of interest was on television at the time. The title seemed boring, but the film itself has remained in my memory as one of the most satisfying and educational, yet entertaining films I have ever seen. I look forward to the time it is once again available on television or VHS or DVD. It at once defines the genre and enlightens it.
