    Make sure you watch the Criterion 216 minute version. The old 149 minute version was butchered by the studio. 6 years 2 months ago

    I thought it was downright incredible. It feels like a precursor to the great HBO miniseries of today. It relies heavily on sublty and juxtaposition. There is barely any exposition in it, most of the dialog is unimportant
    You can discern the story from body language alone. Really remarkable filmmaking, even if it was birthed out of unchecked hubris.
