This film defined a decade before the decade arrived.

Seven nights become seven mornings, with episodic interludes intentionally echoing one another in provocative, sometimes blasphemous ways, the scared alternating with the profane.

It's winsome because of the stylish cinematography, which fills the screen with mind-blowing bizarre visuals.
