At the persistent urging of a friend, I saw "Once".
Rarely am I compelled to write a comment about a movie, let alone yearning to see said movie again - immediately.
I have this sinking feeling that "Once" won't be around much longer in theaters (God knows, we need every available screen for "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry") so give yourself a treat: go see it!
Be warned...you may be so affected you'll buy the soundtrack, check out all the related YouTube videos and won't be able to get it out of your head.
