  • pepoire's rating of the film The Mystery of the Rocks of Kador

    I wouldn't call this the work of transcendent genius that I've seen it suggested elsewhere to be, but wow, how much do I love the cinema therapy plot device? SO MUCH. Soooo much. (Altho I can only imagine the terrible pontificating it must have inspired in a certain kind of film lovers; it's kind of too perfect that way.) It's the sort of film you want to write a paper on, but not overall as great as that one bit.
