I remember seeing this movie late at night on tv. I was very tired when I saw it, so I didn't pay attention to it that much. What I remember from that night was being absolutely confused and terrified at this film. For years, I searched for the movie to rewatch it, and I finally found it due to several people talking about it. I bought the DVD and rewatched it, and my reaction has not changed. This movie is fantastic....and very weird.
I adore this film. It’s darkly hilarious and oddly sweet. Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon make an amazing couple together. The songs by Cat Stevens are wonderful, the humor is dark and morbid, the lessons about life and death are touching and it’s just a pleasant film for me. It’s makes me cry, laugh and want to sing out. It’s a wonderful film.
