| see this movie for alan rickman's performance/ to hear him
the movie is flawed, no doubt about it. i was able to make sense of some of it only by going outside the movie and trying to find out more. no matter though. even though i didn't understand certain scenes or references, i watched this 3 times and finally made myself stop. it's addicting.

it's rickman's voice--it's like a sex organ. nowhere more than in this movie. always his voice is compelling but in this movie it's heady/erotic/powerful.

see this movie if you like rickman. you'll be glad you did.
