I watched this film when it was released on the cinema as a kid and fell in love with it, as well as its sinister and beautiful soundtrack. The sets are spectacular and the wires can be forgiven for 1979 - remember, computer effects were still in their infancy and extremely expensive so the models were smashing. In fact, watching it again, it is still an incredibly beautiful visual effects film. The robot, Maximillian, was creepy and, as a kid, I remember being rather horrified to watch him kill Anthony Perkins in such a brutal manner - but this did not put me off at all ... it was just so bold of Disney and I loved them for it because the story involved madness. I have given it 5 stars because it has stood the test of time and should never ever be re-made because it just would not be the same. A glorious and haunting movie.
