The thing that makes this movie particularly effective is that it feels just like a dream. I’ve had nuclear holocaust dreams all my life, and when I watched this movie I felt like I was dreaming. I really connected emotionally with the main character. He’s a nerd who has suddenly met the girl of his dreams, a nerdy, cute girl with glasses and a sweet demeanor, and at that precise moment the world appears as if it is going to come to an end! And he’s not going to get a chance to even kiss her before the world goes poof! hey, it’s bad enough to die, but to die with an unfulfilled love is truly nightmarish! The movie is not exactly illogical, but follows a sort of dream logic, where things just get worse and worse, relentlessly, and the harder you try to run away, the slower you move. The ending is devastating, horrifying and heart warming all at the same time.After seeing this movie for the first time I shivered for hours, and couldn’t bring myself to watch it again for 12 years! Its not that I didn’t like it, I just knew that if I saw it again I would lose that special thrilling fear that it instilled in me. But it was so powerful that when i did see it 12 years later I remembered every plot, every character and event. On one viewing it imprinted itself on my brain, which movies hardly ever do.See it! And see it late at night in a dark room!cb
