"Why do I do these things?
I saw the previews for this on Movies! While watching another picture and had to DVR it. This was a wonderful movie with a very eccentric lead performance from McQueen. This definitely wasn't his best movie, but it was a unique side of him on display. I recommend seeing this once.
