Intrigued by your ignorance
5 November 2000 | by froggystyle_212See all my reviews

For those who read this, this is not a knock. I have viewed this movie more than a couple of times and feel a sense of accomplished direction each time I see it. For those who have taken the time to comment on this film and give it bad reviews are taking a step back in your own ignorance. If you actually take the time to search this movie on this website and spend the time to go through and make a bad comment then you aren't really looking at what you are doing. This movie has made an impact on you with an underlying sense of contact. You can't just watch movies today and expect the message to be staring you right in the face like a black splotch on a piece of white paper, use your mind to detect the feelings and emotions of human reality displayed in this masterpiece. The love/life conflict in this story was tremendous and very true. Great film and hope to see more like it.
