I don't want to warn you off the film because I thought it was awesome but you should know. Perhaps you should wait to rent in and watch it on a smaller screen instead.
Well, I don't think that would make all that of a difference. It would just make it harder to focus with something that intense on a smaller screen. Ofcourse I'm down to get it on DVD, but for sure I think first-timers of this film should see it in theatres.
