Not my thing. As for the dialogue... forced and unnatural... tried too hard. Gimme a break.
no, no, just no. The dialogue seemed so much less forced than almost anything else I have ever seen. Probably one of the first movies I remember thinking "damn, I could actually see this conversation happening on the fly without a script".
As for being 2 decades too late, I saw it for the first time probably 10 years ago and it is still one of my favorite films. Any time I see it on I almost have to finish it.
to the Diner and the torture scenes.
