To read an in depth analysis of a very dark dark film, was always going to be a tough task. The book took me back into the sights, sounds, music and the shock of the film and most importantly back to the cinema I sat in when I first watched it. Very good.
Another great criticism in the BFI Modern Classics series; I love reading these books and rewatching the movies to see new things.
A wonderful little book that should appeal to fans of the film and film students alike
