I just finished watching this movie with commentary, and after seeing how much care goes into each scene, I have fallen for the movie all over again.
Even after watching this film 10+ times now, I love it all the more. I have never held this movie as my favorite, but now it has moved into the #1 position after a careful study, and realizing that even 50 more viewings would not unlock all the little treasures hidden within.
