MOVIE: The Paper Chase

Has anyone seen this movie?  I just saw it last night for the first time.  I've read in endless law school books that this is one of the best depictions of law school, along with the book 1L by Scott Turow.

If the movie wasn't set in the 1970s, I would have enjoyed it much more.  Nevertheless, after seeing it, I was really excited about going to law school.  I always knew I wanted to become an attorney, but was a bit afraid of law school because I didn't know what to expect.  But now, I don't see it as such a scary place, nor as a horrendous obstacle one must cross to become an attorney.  It actually seems quite fun in a challenging sort of way.

Thoughts?
