| I don't get it -- Bagdad Cafe is flat, despite what everyone seems to say
I simply had to register on this site and weigh in on this film. Even though Bagdad Cafe was released a long time ago (late 80's), and I'd never heard of it before recently, for some reason it came across my vision from two different sources in the last week. These two sources "oozed" about how great a film it is. I went online and read lots of similar reviews, including the NYTimes, Rotten Tomatoes, and many more. Nearly all oozed with praise for this film.

So I watched it. Yes, nice photography. That's where it stopped for me. The rest is about cardboard characters walking through a thinly written script with poorly transitioned plot evolutions, ... I don't get it. It's so-called "charm" is OK, I guess, but hardly worth the gushing reviews I've read.

I love movies. Watch many. Many types. I don't see what all the fuss is about on Bagdad Cafe. Curious.
