The Greatest Movie of all time
22 December 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Once in a while a movie so special comes along, that it changes the world as we know it. This is one of those movies. Outstanding. In addition to being one of the most powerful movies of this century, it has also inspired me to become a better, more caring and generous person. North America is in your debt Anus Magillicutty. And I, for one, would like to thank the creators for giving birth to such a masterpiece, that as I soak in every ounce of this movie I lose my breath and shed my tears. The term 'best movie of all time' is thrown around a lot, but as of 2003 I think we have an answer to this much debated topic. So if you haven't seen this movie, go out and do yourself a service, and rent this masterstroke of film-making.
