    This is movie number 1000 for me!
    So glad I picked this masterpiece for that honor.

    I can't say much without spoilers, and you do NOT want any spoilers, so - just be prepared to be glued to the screen. Fascinating layered tale, awesome cast, great soundtrack.

    And that ending.
    You could hear a pin drop in the theater when it was over, you know, that time when people usually turn to each other to comment - nothing. Just silence. I think we were each lost in our own thoughts. I think I still am.

    Oh, but - Good Vibrations might be forever ruined for me.

    Just watched this again while flipping through the channels, and of course it is SUPERB. And it has a lot in common with "Us", in that it is truly frightening even though it doesn't necessarily entirely make sense if you really think about it. But it doesn't have to.
    And "Us" has a way deeper commentary/message than The Shining, so take that!
