User Reviews

A mentally ill man wanders through his mind to find his sanity
16 September 1998 | by yendisSee all my reviews

This is one of the finest psychological movies ever made. I remember it with admiration for it, although it was 60 odd years ago. It also had a haunting music accompaniment. I wish I could find a tape of it!
