    ★★★★

    A melancholy French classic, in which a lonely widow revisits her past and seeks out the men who courted her 20 years earlier. The set design and photography often very inventive and it's fascinating to watch a European movie from this era - the performances are way more naturalistic than you'd expect, and some the content (one character is an abortion doctor and there are strippers who actually strip) is way beyond anything you'd find in a Hollywood movie from the 1930s.

    ★★★★★

    One of my all-time favourite movies - cult movie perfection. The dialogue, the characters, the performances and the whacked-out mix of punk rock teen alienation and sci-fi conspiracy hijinks make for a brilliantly original one-off. And the new blu-ray looks GREAT!

    ★★

    Not awful, just ordinary... those in-jokes and meta-references that once seemed so clever and fresh now just feel tired, and it's way too drawn-out and repetitive. Still, Craven delivers a few suspenseful sequences and the 'teen' cast provide some youthful energy even if the old-timers (Campbell, Cox, Arquette) clearly just turned up for the pay cheque.
