05.31.07Paramount I also like this one, although I'll freely admit that it's very dated. All the psychoanalysis stuff was (I guess) so new back then and so familiar today that it comes off as humor, which is ok I guess. The movie has other problems as well, and also has that feeling for me of being a puzzle film that's specifically designed to see two times and never again: once to be surprised at the end then again to pick up on all the clues you missed the first time. Lots of cague shots of seemingly innocuous things that you watch and trust that the movie will explain to you later. For whatever reason, these types of movies seem a little cheap to me after repeated viewings.

But still, there are plenty of things here that I like, enough for me to hold true to my "liked it" status. And whether they want to admit it or not, the audience couldn't help but gasp in both these movies tonight, which is always fun.
