brilliant work

I saw this film at the Sitges festival in December 2003 and it blew my mind. My legs were like jelly as I tried to exit the theatre. I have never been affected like this from a film. The director described it as a "poison". I went up to him afterward and told him that it was, instead, an "antidote".

I can see this splitting audiences in a big way, as the comments here attest. I don't think you could be indifferent. You'll love it or hate it. I loved it because it was well constructed and well executed, self-assured, daring, packing an intensity that made it impossible to take my eyes off the screen, all building to an ending that was so perfect it defies description. See it and decide for yourself.
