    1. Hi James. I tried to leave a comment on your post but it didn’t work. So here’s what I wanted to comment: I enjoyed reading this so much! Your writing style is so fluid and interesting. I love how you concentrated on the way characters are dressed is such an important plot point. I think this is a very underrated film, and I’m so glad I bought in on blu ray as it showed me the film in the form it deserves. Thanks so much for participating in my Blogathon with such a wonderful article.
