The quintessential study of 2 thespian lab rats at the end of the '60's. It is poetic, hilariously funny and profoundly humane; a must own. I strongly recommend the 2 disc UK special edition from AnchorBay as it is anamorphic (the Criterion, however, gives the more accurate aspect ratio).
Kubrick's masterpiece; pure cinema.
The Pialat film that opened the door; I've never looked back since. Searching any DVD's of his I can find.
The most expensive experimental film ever made perhaps?
I wrote a review of this DVD when it first came out; you can access this review and other wonderful writings on cinema at www.offscreen.com Link to review at http://www.horschamp.qc.ca/new_offscreen/straw_dogs.html
