Thought maybe there were some fans of this flick on here. If not, I highly recommend it.

Strange, disturbing, hopeful, sad, and highly entertaining.

You seem to have a great taste in films, this is another one of my favorites. It's probably the only good Australian film ever made, though. Haha.

I am also a great fan of this film. The scientist's monologue near the end is possibly my favourite monologue of any movie I've seen. I remember the first time I heard it, I just thought 'Wow. He just put exactly how I feel into more bold and dignified words than I could have come up with.' I love the line, 'It is our duty to think God out of existence.'

Here's the whole quote:

'You see, no one's going to help you Bubby, because there isn't anybody out there to do it. No one. We're all just complicated arrangements of atoms and subatomic particles we don't live. But our atoms do move about in such a way as to give us identity and consciousness. We don't die; our atoms just rearrange themselves. There is no God. There can be no God; it's ridiculous to think in terms of a superior being. An inferior being, maybe, because we, we who don't even exist, we arrange our lives with more order and harmony than God ever arranged the earth. We measure; we plot; we create wonderful new things. We are the architects of our own existence. What a lunatic concept to bow down before a God who slaughters millions of innocent children, slowly and agonizingly starves them to death, beats them, tortures them, rejects them. What folly to even think that we should not insult such a God, damn him, think him out of existence. It is our duty to think God out of existence. It is our duty to insult him. Fuck you, God! Strike me down if you dare, you tyrant, you non-existent fraud! It is the duty of all human beings to think God out of existence. Then we have a future. Because then and only then do we take full responsibility for who we are. And that's what you must do, Bubby: think God out of existence; take responsibility for who you are.'

EDIT: I am also Australian, by the way.

I had this film downloaded a long time ago but never got around to watching it. Unfortunately, a year or two ago one of my external hard drives died and so I lost out on many films I had yet to watch. I'll have to re-download it.

Nice to see a little love and interest in this flick.

I've had a burned copy of it for years and would really like to invest in a proper copy. The price of Blu Rays on Amazon is insane.
