Classic Movie of the Week|
OnM - May 24, 2002
But it matters little, 'cause I've been wanting to find an excuse to recommend this movie since I first started the column last year, and this last week's ep (and the season overall) offers as good a connection as I am ever likely to find between it and the Buffyverse. This is a film that deals with addiction (but not the way you think) and loneliness (also with a twist) and sorrow and the need to escape from pain, to cast off numbness and apathy. Like Buffy, it falls within the genre of science fiction and fantasy, and adds a touch of horror (but also not in the typical way). There are even robots!
