What is going on in this country?!!!
10 February 2009 | by vanessabnrSee all my reviews

Wow! Just saw an old low res version on my laptop Okay this is a tough movie and I need a walk and some fresh air now thats fur sure but this movie blew me away It challenged me, moved me, made me laugh and cry I cant understand why this movie isn't going to play at the cinemas here! What is the problem folks? I mean compared to recent Kiwi fodder like Apron Strings, Show of Hands etc it is a masterpiece in terms of ideas, performance, direction etc Lets hope it gets an audience on DVD, I'll be spreading the word thats for sure! Also hear through the grapevine that there's a live streaming happening soon, that'l be interesting, how people will respond Wicked
