So this is one of those old movies from the 1960's that I'd heard good things about for years (in fact it just placed #2 on a recent list of 50 lost movies), but had never had a chance to see, because for a long time it wasn't on dvd. Well, now it is and I finally watched it and ... I'm not sure what to say about it. It's something that probably needs to be thought about at length. But I will say that I liked it a great deal, and it's probably something that every filmmaker should see. It's beautifully crafted, features great performances, and the way it's put together and the photography ... well, it is apparent that it's had a serious impact on more than a few people in the film industry in subsequent years, and deservedly so.

But I'm unsure of what exactly to say about it beyond that, so if you want opinions on it look here, here, here and here.
