| Best film I have ever seen
If you asked me to name my number one film of all time, It's not the ShawShank or the other usual suspects!. The tale of Sweety Barrett is my number 1. It is the only film I have ever watched that makes me want to cry. If I were Brendan Gleeson, this would be the one film I would be most proud of (and God knows he has some great films). I understand that most people won't or don't get it, (I watched Raging Bull and thought it was Rubish!) but if you are one of the few that does, you will Love this film. The story is about a guy who is a bit simple, but has some very unusual talents, can drink just about anything, is as hardy as a rock and strong as an OX. It's a simple tale without the usual special effects
