Undoubtedly it is a great film, worthy of the title 'classic masterpeice'. If you haven't watched it, then you should watch it before you die and if you don't like it, that's fine but at least you dared yourself to watch a masterpiece and you should be saying that it's a good film or else you should stick with Transformers, The Room, or Caligula.
