    Looks bizarre. Wonder if it will get a nationwide release?

    Actually just caught The Eyes of My Mother last week at a local genre film festival, and was one of my favourites of the festival. Very moody and beautiful B&W cinematography, and the film is subtle and weird and also rather downbeat the entire time. It doesn't have much in way of story/dialogue, so those expecting something with a more engaging story over atmosphere might have some issues with it, but I personally loved it.

    That's a pretty accurate one-line description of the film. It's definitely not for everyone, but I can't wait to check it out again soon.

    Was surprised to find the blu-ray in store at Best Buy for only $12.99. Comes with a beautiful slipcover too.

    Great movie, check it out!

    This film is pretty f**ked up. Well made with few actors and little dialog. I would think that most people on this site would enjoy this film and if you have Netflix there isn't an excuse not to watch it.

    I put this on my Netflix watch list last week. These latest reviews/videos make me want to bump it all the way to the top. I may check it out this Friday. Kind of excited now!

    Watched this last night 'cause a buddy of mine somehow had two copies so he gave me one of them. Wow. What a unique film. It's very subdued and calm, yet the subject matter and events that occur are extremely nasty. This had the potential to be an over-the-top gorefest and instead it was handled like, well as others have already remarked, a Bergman film. As such, it sticks with you more. Gonna rewatch this one again soon, I imagine.
