Just finished watching "Tommy".

You know it's a weird film when Jack Nicholson is the sanest character in it!

Wow! I never even realised that *was* Jack Nicholson.

I used to own the DVD but I never enjoyed it. My wife pinned down the reason: there is *no* pleasant character in the whole movie. (except the doctor, now you come to mention it)

It's the only DVD I recall disposing of.

Me neither.

Actually, was he sane? His explanation didn't make much sense to me. If he senses but can't respond, how can you tell?

Well, he mentioned stuff about the irises adjusting in response to light, and other measurable physical responses. IOW, he used advanced medical equipment to look for physical causes of blindness and deafness, and didn't find any.
