I just finished watching this film and it is surely one of the finest movies I've ever seen...A true masterpiece that had me emotionally connected to the characters and the story. Superb film, a must see for movie fans!

One of the greatest films which is simultaneously one of the most UNDERRATED films!

I saw this for the first time a few days ago, and I'm still recovering from the impact it left me with . Absolutely oustanding film in every sense of the word.

One of the most daring and sinister portrayals in filmic history.

How is this not in the top 100 films in the global chat? It is not just immensely entertaining but is a powerful movie as well with an actual message. Not to mention Norton's best ever performance. He did a perfect job in this movie, man.

With better cinematography this could have been one of the best movies ever. But because it lacked that I still say didn't deserve a spot in the top 100 of all time
