"Is not a man bigger than a town?"
27 November 2001 | by cp12001See all my reviews

A few times in my life I've had to go it alone, and this line from this movie has created the hero I've needed to emulate. The quote you read here is probably not exact, but the meaning is seared into my brain.

When will we be able to see this film again?
