intense, ingeniously structured The movie that launched
a thousand theories (half of them feminist) remains
one of the most unlikely and amazing films to come out
of hollywood, a bastion of the auteur theory. this film

involuntarily, I have either seen or discussed this
film at one point or other with the three most influential

most infI debated with my girlfriend over whether this
film was surrealist or not. She just though it was creative.
I remember my ex seeing this movie and saying she was
very disturbed by it, and left it at that. delightful
