    Just saw this.

    Very thought provoking throughout and quite possibly the most harrowing last quarter hour of a film I've seen for a long time. It's not often that I spend 15 minutes of a film thinking I know what could happen and praying it won't.

    A totally different way of looking at a subject that one might think had no new angles.

    I hesitate to even start this thread as I know where they often lead. Hopefully not, on this occasion.

    I am new here, and my first visit to the movie section. And I absolutely agree with your sentiments. I am actually surprised there were no comments made. I found it to be a very thought provoking movie, and added it to my top ten. :)

    I knew it was going to be like that. I don't want to see it.
