ya but you guys only gave it 3 1/2 stars and while I agree that the
style is nothing special , this is great film and DESERVES four stars.
As for the unamed Kino film, it is a signicant story but a middling film.
Just wait till THE MAN WHO LAUGHS comes out, that is when I really get
defensive about reviews ( besides you don't like The Homecoming and I do)

( who still thinks KISS ME DEADLY is the greatest film ever made
and is rooting for the CUBS who spend a whole 18 hours in first place
last week)
