    i had the pleasure to view this movie yesterday and let me start out by saying that the title to the movie is an absolute hit. the title envisions mounds and mounds of intriging mysterious thoughts. the fact that it is in black and white only makes the effects of the scenes better than in color. this movie is a 4 star movie...the sets...directing...acting...plot...4 star all the way. why hollywood ever got away from this type of production is beyond me.
