Storyline

Black comedy about a normal guy, about to get married, who starts to question all things of a cosmic significance. He starts seeing only The Big Picture, ignoring trivialities (like his wife having a mock affair to get his attention), and gradually withdraws into himself. Told in flashback and retrospect at his funeral from the perspective of his friends and colleagues, we see the characters he encounters on his voyage of enlightenment - including the girl he falls for, and the escaped asylum patient in the middle of the desert who converses only by means of celebrity impersonations...

Quite Enjoyable
6 January 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A little off, but not in a bad way. I think the filmmaker honestly wanted to offer up something deeper than your usual fare.

I watched it because it started with Dvorak's 9th Symphony, 2nd movement, which is a beautiful piece of music. Hypnotized, I sat and watched the whole thing. It didn't let me down. Nice visuals, good sense of humor. The girls were attractive, especially the Italian girl he meets in the diner toward the end.

When the credits rolled, I was glad I watched it. It had some interesting ideas in it, and makes you think. I commented because it made me sad that the only comment was a negative one. Doesn't deserve that. I appreciate what writer-director John Ryman tried to do and what he did do, and enjoyed the result. It was a pleasant way to pass 90 minutes, and I'll probably watch it again.
