This is one film that I'm really curious about and hope to see sooner than later. Despite S&A reader reactions to it when I first profiled the film (mostly negative if I recall correctly), I'm intrigued by the subject matter, and the fact that reactions from from those I know who have seen it have been quite polarizing makes it even more enticing. I love it when a film divides passionate audiences.
