CGiii Comment

Why this is in the top 250 films of all time...........is a mystery.
 
It's terrible...........a tedious stream of close-ups of a rather butch and tearful woman interspersed with close-ups of old, angry men.............where's the art in that for Christ's sake?
 
Just because it's old doesn't mean it's good.

Overrated by the usual pseudo-film-intellectuals.
