Nailed it. What I admired was how the wedding scenes portray the private and public grief of depression and our attempts to hold it all together for life's demands. In the end, what's it all for. Sad poetry. Great art.
I love films about LA at night. It's an inspiring genre that doesn't get enough attention.

You're right - it's close to impossible to make an art film about art and Kiefer is one of the most difficult artists to cover. I wonder if keifer had final cut? On the fence as well.
My favorite Kubrick. Haunts my life. Never forget Janet Maslin's review in NYTimes when it came out. She got it when everyone didn't. Movie will get recognition as masterpiece over time.
