(Watched Sat 29 Dec 2012) Still one of my favourites, I can see its flaws clearer now, certainly - it's overlong; the coda is too drawn out with unnecessary exposition at odds with its earlier subtlety; and the characters veer into archetypes more than real people - but it's still a beautiful, powerful film.

(Watched Sat 29 Dec 2012) Far, far too long - it's a two-hour movie at best - but otherwise it's better than expected, with some smart cinematography and a sinister edge that belies its reputation as 'Singa-Longa' trash. The diagesis certainly helps, too, sewing most the songs neatly into the fabric of the story; others, however, stand out weirdly like iron-on patches.
