    It's a rollicking good time, full of genuine emotional pull and incandescent acting, and anchored by a passionate love for the theater itself which puts most human liaisons--including Shakespeare and Viola's -- to shame.

    This is a waking dream of truly operatic dimensions.

    It always surprises, never bores. It's also just damn good, on every possible level -- so go see it. Now.

    Though issues of politics and philosophy are touched upon, this is a film about the people inside the uniforms -- a story of human beings under pressure, forced by circumstance to make choices both impulsive and, on occasion, heroic. It's also the new year's single most satisfying movie experience thus far.

    Sweet and hilarious, a classic crowd-pleaser which elevates rather than eviscerates the homespun eccentrics who make up its cast of characters.

    Subtle, strange, off-putting, fascinating.

    The kind of thing Franz Kafka might have dreamed up, had he only had access to a daily dose of MTV.

    Man, I just can't recommend this enough.
