Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, it was basically one of those cases when I heard about the movie for years, I got such huge expectations and this movie reached an almost mythical status in my mind.

"“This film is truly groundbreaking…years ahead of its time. This is the style now that everybody does…. They have this amazing ability to improv, it feels so unwritten….
