Description

Highly praised -- in fact, a little over-praised -- sci-fi tale of poor Scott Carey, a guy whose exposure to both heavyduty insecticide and a drifting cloud of atomic radiation has him gettin' shorter and shorter. Many evocative and well-remembered sequences (meeting the dwarf woman, the fights with the housecat and the spider), but the ending is either hopeful (he keeps shrinking but realizes that he'll always remain himself) or nihilistic (how small can he get, after all?), depending on your personal perceptions. Maybe not a classic, but worth seeing once.
