This was my 2nd feature on night #2 of Sunday Sinema at Seidenfaden's. Unfortunately, most people left after The Warriors and truly missed out on this one. I have reviewed it before and my opinion remains... starts off slow (probably too much build up) but kicks into a claustrophobic thriller. John Carpenter rules!

This was my 1st movie on night #2 of Sunday Sinema at Seidenfaden's. And even though a couple rowdy friends caused me to miss the first half, it didn't matter.. I have seen this many times and finally bumped it up to 5 stars. I mean what was I thinking? A stone cold classic in every way. Seeing it with people that knew the dialogue and every frame was quite a treat! Goes into to my Top 100 all time list!
"What lingered after them was not life, but the most trivial list of mundane facts: A clock ticking on a wall, a room dim at noon, and the outrageousness of a human being thinking only of herself."
Wow! 2 pretty great movies in one night. This was another one I had on my list for years and just got around to. Heavy movie (as you might guess from the title) directed really well by Sofia Coppola and the added bonus of a stellar cast. This is kind of what can happen when you shelter your kids too much and smother them with religion. Recommended
