I have just watched this film for the second time in my life. The first being when it was released on video for rental in the early 80's. Is this one of the finest explorations into the nature of humanity, shown in a stark and remorseless fashion, or is it nothing more than a finely choreographed and shameless manipulations of our feelings, with nothing more to say than the obvious. Opinions please. As for me, to coin a phrase, "I cried like a pussy"
