Manchurian Candidate

I watched the original version on PBS last night, and I remembered what an amazing film it is. I'm wary of what this summer's remake is going to do to the classic, though Jonathan Demme is a great director. I suppose as long as the new one attempts to emulate the original's detailed character development, can bring a modern perspective to the original idea, and doesn't include a blaring DMX soundtrack to thirty-minute motorcycle/hotrod chases, it'll be alright.
