    I just finished watching this DVD from Netflix and it is a very good movie.

    Did anyone else watch it, and if so did you like it or not?

    i saw it with some friends when it first came out. pretty good, imo. i had low expectations about it because it seemed boring and bad reviews, but i was pleased. William Hurt bascially made the movie for me. He's delightful.

    I saw it and I liked it. Except for the twist ending? What I thought was confusing was the build up about how his daughter had the same "problem" as him and then she kills him and that would have made a sensible ending but then it turns out to be a dream and therefore irrelevant and ends with him lying in bed a few minutes later. I thought they could have left it in and be done but to contradict it in the last few moments didn't make sense.

    I felt the graveyard scene would have been the most logical place to end the film.

    I liked the ending. In the dream sequence it wouldn't make sense. I thought that maybe he was molesting her and that maybe she was pregnant with his child, otherwise it would make no sense that she would kill him.

    I like the ending it shows that his alter ego is still there.
