Although a classic, it did not entirely appeal to me
on June 8, 2000
I saw this in a film class, and I know I'll be lynched for this, but I found it pretty draggy. There were some terrific scenes, and I think the cinematography was some of the best I'd ever seen (especially the dinner party scenes and how they flowed from one couple to the next so smoothly in was seemed like one take), I think this could have used a harsher edit. I can see how it is a classic, but scenes such as the rabbit hunting scene could have been trimmed down a bit. Perhaps I'm being too critical. Again, I was awed by the filming, but not by the movie itself.
