This film is nothing less than a Tour de Force. From the exquisite acting skills, tight editing, melancholic atmosphere, it is the embodiment of what an excellent film is all about. It truly illustrates the expression, "less is more." No, it was not abounding in action, thrills, car races,and the like but requires the viewer to actually engage his intellect as he observes the gradual self-destruction of the so called leader of the pack. The film carries you along effortlessly as it envelopes you with deep resentments,guilt, jealousies,and low self-esteem issues. All this angst is interwoven with a realism rarely experienced in other films. I give it a resounding 10/10!!
