I'm one more of the folks who saw this film years ago, and have found it stuck in my heart and gut ever since. Dark, beautiful, tender, sassy and way ahead of its time, this one's a keeper. The setting, the costumes, the characterization -- all exceed most films made since. Most haunting, however, is the mood that's set. This film has an emotional color that is as compelling as any of its characters. At least once in their lives, a genius gets it altogether. This was an early outing for Taymor, but she gave it everything she has. And that's a great deal. I, like the other Fool's Fire junkies, would give anything to get a good DVD copy of this film. I know I would find something new, deeper each time I watched!
