Simone Visentini's rating of the film The Manchurian Candidate

one of my favorite movie, it reached some soulfulness that even i am not allowed to know (goddamnmysubconscious). it talks about the fear that arises from mental illness. good storyline, but what struck me the most was washington watching shaw's ascent and jeffrey wright's role that freaked me out. loved the sexual tension between ben and rosie and the lansbury fake pitch of streep. ganz and voigt masters-teachers.
