A unique and original film that I found completely engrossing throughout. Great cast too and I never really knew where the plot would go next. Great film.

First time for me. Blown away. Best part is, I'm not sure I would have loved this one 18 years ago. Guess I'm catching it at exactly the right time, because it's awesome.
