Because it unselfs you in a fractured mirror.

Perfection. Unimprovable.

It should be about two steps higher but hey, life ain't perfect ;)

David Shultz said...

I concur. Most certainly unimprovable. I knew this was coming but I was anxious to find out where, exactly.

I know your top two for sure now, I just can't wait to see how you're gonna sum them up! And which will be 1st and 2nd...although I'm fairly sure which will win out. I think you're going to put xXx over Stealth, but that may just be the flimsily rose tinted line of argument attributed to my personal bias shining through ;p

Your description is tres magnifique. Really exquisite. The only time I saw Persona, I was confined to bed for a mystery illness and had borrowed the movie from Nick. When it was over, I just lay there for awhile, looking at the quiet TV, and then looking at my ceiling, and then just kind of looking. What a movie.

Mylo, you've got my number. It was painful not being able to get Resident Evil: Apocalypse in here too, but what can you do?

Neil Young said...

sorry, just can't get this one. of his, prefer The Rite, Hour of the Wolf, etc.

Nick Davis said...

Further proof that it takes all kinds, since Hour of the Wolf is one of the few Bergmans I don't jive with at all.

I like The Rite very much, but not this much.
