Viewer Quote: "This is an excellet movie, period. Strauss is very good! There are very few movies that I truly love, this however is one of them. With it's gritty realism, fantastic on-site location, and it's great soundtrack, it blew me away. The power of this film still stuns today. Someone please make more movies like this one. UNBELIEVABLE!!"
