    Remarkable movie that haunts you during and after viewing! First time we saw this was over at Robyn\'s apartment - - I guess I was the only person watching who wasn\'t already totally wired/stoned, but the film was still captivating! Three hours later I, too, was totally out of it and watched the flick again. WOW! Entirely different movie!!! I predict it will become a cult classic . . . . . . . . .
