A beautiful and unique tragic modern musical
What an amazing movie! I stumbled upon this looking for something in the vein of Bob Fosse, and was not disappointed. A complex character piece full of emotional depth, with a sarcastic tragic chorus in the form of a modern Brechtian circus. I can't believe that this film has not received more kudos. While I was able to catch quite a bit of the symbolism, I know that this is a film that I will have to watch over and over peeling away layers in attempt to reach the core. I probably won't be able to watch it again for a while though because it made me feel quite melancholic, but that only adds to the beauty of this terrific film. I wish I had discovered it sooner.
