I saw it 4 times in the theaters (including a month prior to release at a festival), and bought the unrated DVD the first day it was availble. Yes, I did love that movie (considering how gut-wrenching it is, I must be some sort of cinematic masochist).<P>b: For the love of all that is good and pure, if there is an independant video store in your area, rent the Directors Cut (the unrated version). blockbuster and hollywood refused to carry it, but the impact of the climactic sequence is <i>so</i> much more powerful in the complete version.<P>OK, that is all, except that I am still <a href="http://angrypeople.keenspace.com/d/20010611.html">bitter</a> about Ellen Burstyn not getting the Oscar for that performance. I mean come on, they gave it to Julia Roberts for crying out loud. *grumbles incoherently*<P>------------------
