I've been watching it a fair few times recently for a project and it is just amazing. The acting, screenplay, directing and most importantly the cinematography all come together to create such a masterpiece. This is perhaps my fav. film of all time.

The composition of every shot is jaw dropingly amazing and i live in awe of Conrad Hall who is my idol.

I one day wish to create the masterful images he created when making this film.

The ending shot when 'Ricky Fitts' kneels down into the reflection off of the blood. Ah it is truly awe inspiring.

What are other peoples opinions on this movie?

I like it a lot now. It took me a half-dozen viewings or so to decide whether or not I like it. I admired it, certainly, but I couldn't decide whether or not it was a movie I "like." That probably sounds strange. :lol:

I loved it from the first time I saw it.

I love the way it turns from a depressing feel, to a happy, colourful and bright feel, into a dark, atmospherical feel.

Scripts like that are hard to come by...
