I think H6 is expressive of all kinds of ideas about existence. The texture of the film is magnetic, dark yet colourful, grim but oddly beautiful.
Kara Strode is a great central character; the scene where she returns home and looks for her mother is quite a profound one, as well as the whole climax at the hospital.
The really strange thing is that despite essentially being the same work of art, the producer's cut is what I consider to be opposite in quality; the theatrical version is far superior.
Is it that you just respect the Carpenter film?
