    Extremely intellegent film making, nice job everyone! I was thoroughly impressed and this will go down as one of the hugest cult classics, I can see it now! This is on my top 100 of all time, for many reasons other than acting or script. Directing is superb and captivates the correct emotions in which the film and characters are trying to evoke.
