Rather have "viewers like me" opinions rather than post to reviews even though DVD Talk's is not up yet. Thanks.

It's a terrific film. Clarkson is equally as good in this as she was in "Pieces of April".

How come DVD Talk hasn't done a review for this yet?

Because dvdtalk discriminates against dwarves, midgets, elves, and gnomes.

So they won't be reviewing the Return of the King special edition, then?

But seriously, while ROTK was my favorite film of last year, I consider The Station Agent to be the BEST film. An easy purchase for me.

Okay, it's up. Sorry about the delay. The studio sent the disc later than usual.

My favorite film of 2003. A wonderful quiet little film with excellent performances by the entire cast.

Seeing nothing but praise, I will dare to express a dissenting opinion. I like many small independent films but I found this one flat out boring.

My favorite indy film from last year: Shattered Glass.
