Phantom of the Paradise ★★★★★

Oddly this film is possibly the third most-watched film in my 'repertoire' after "A Christmas Carol" and "Zulu".
And tonight I added another viewing to its tally. I think I first saw it on TV when I was 8 or 9. Then whenever I saw it come back on I watched it again - pretty much growing up with it as much as with the previously mentioned titles.
It's impossible for me to review "Phantom of the Paradise" without being highly aware of the nostalgia it evokes. It remains one of my all-time favourites.
