I remember looking around at people after this and feeling some kind of kinship with everyone over what we had seen. I'm not sure I have any interest in seeing the movie again but it's a great reminder that even pretty suspect movies can catch you off-guard in the right moment.
Reminds me of (the same, as above) friend who told me about seeing Henny Youngman perform. Figuring he was old and sort of a hack, my friend and his dad didn't expect much. But lo and behold, Henny wore them down, and the audience was literally falling out of their chairs and crying in the aisles!
