I watched this movie today, and will have a review of it up in the next few days. here's the trailer from the re-release in 1978, which I was fortunate enough to see in the theater with my brother. it was a great time, even if I knew exactly what would happen in the movie, thanks to the book I recently bought.
it's due to seeing it at the age of 13 that I like it more than some of Ray's other movies. I'm surprised I haven't ever written about it, aside from this post about the blu ray disc being released nearly three years ago.
