How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This is one of the most glowing and gorgeous films ever made. Now, to have a score by Philip Glass is a real bonus. Their ensemble played it beautifully, and what a nice surprise to find he wrote oratorio to the dialogue as well. Only complaint: the show just started. No discussion, no intro, no preparation. Oh, it is a concert, not a film festival presentation. Well, it suffered for lack of that. And I would have loved to know how many in the audience were seeing this film for the first time, lucky them. And lucky everyone who attends,
