Really so good I have said it before and I will say it again, because each scene is perfect, besides the buffalo bill ones which are too theatrical.

And yet it is trash, meaningless thrills, amoral or immoral, and also so what, after ideology we are at feasters at the spectacle, a concept about 50 years old, and more pertinent daily.
