Immensely entertaining, intriguingly philosophical and just about one of the best films ever made!

Had a rewatch of this last night, it has never lost its impact. So stylish, its influenced so many films over the last 17 years and will go on to do so, its definitely a film that made the 21st Century. The cast is perfect, when you read some of the names that turned down the roles originally, I am so glad they did, I cant imagine anyone else on these roles now. The influences from Baudrillard to the Bible all littered throughout, so many layers to this perfect story, and again the look of the film is fantastic. An absolute 10! Watch it!!
