    If you watch all three of them in a row, There is an incredible power to each scene. Ray crafts a brilliant trilogy. If you haven't seen them yet, go see them now. 7 years 3 months ago

    Absolutely incredible. The entire trilogy is heart-stoppingly brilliant, but this one is just so full of life. It's an absolute masterpiece.

    I highly recommend watching the entire trilogy. Especially watch out for the use of trains as symbolism. The final shot is beyond extraordinary once you recognize the recurring motif.

    Seriously do whatever you have to to see these movies!
