    One of those movies, no matter when it comes on, I have to watch all the way through. It's on Encore.

    And Elisabeth Shue? Doesn't get much better than that.

    This was one of those movies that I really liked, that I'm glad I saw, but that I have no desire to see again. Just an excruciatingly depressing flick.

    Totally concur.

    There are definitely some painful scenes in this movie. Still, very fascinating. Oh, and Elisabeth Shue. Maybe I've mentioned that.

    I agree with Buckdubs. The gang rape scene is brutal, just like the ass-to-ass scene in Requiem for a Dream. Two movies I'm glad I've seen only once.

    Actually I didn't really like it. I thought it was well made and the actors were terrific but I didn't find anything redeeming to take away from it.

    Requiem was an outstanding, outstanding movie.

    And like you, I never want to see it again.

    Any chance The Whole Year Inn is still around?

    Never seen it. Maybe I should.

    One of those movies meant to take you to a world you normally wouldn't dare go, and not meant to make it easy. Hollywood used to make more of this stuff that doesn't exactly work on a Burger King cup and isn't meant to be a franchise. Nic Cage richly deserved his Oscar; like Theron in Monster, he made you totally forget he's Movie Star Nic Cage.

    It's a fantastic movie, but like Monster I'll never watch it again. I can't handle rape scenes.
