    re-watched this recently. Still funny though a little less than I recall. Feels like it drags on a bit too much near the end..

    This is my new addition to favorite films of all time! Wonderful, surreal film with simply amazing cinematography. I loved the imagery. In particular, the framing and black and white. It is obvious that a lot of thought and preparation went into the choice of location backgrounds, costume and lighting. The beautiful tones of black, grey and white stand out. This is a masterpiece!!

    Almost experimental. Great soundtrack. Moody as hell. Tracking shots like those of Birth. Reminds me of Roeg's "The Man Who Fell to Earth" in that the film is experienced through the eyes of the alien. Not much is explained. I like the mystery.

    This is one film that did not appeal to me in the least. I was not even particularly impressed by the cinematography. I won't criticize this one because my feelings about it are obviously biased.
