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...

C'mon, Don't You Know Existentialism When You See it?
21 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For me, this movie was an unexpected treat. I surfed across it on TV one night, and decided to watch just until I recognized the plot. Then I would go off to bed. I wound up watching the whole remainder and then renting it to see the beginning. Folks, this is a comedy about existential angst. That, my dear, is not an easy thing to do.

This is a man who has gotten the BIG picture of the Universe, and is experiencing the loss of all meaning. That's hard to write comedy about. Probably the second most important aspect of the movie is the variety of others' reactions to Big Philosophy, or their lack of ability to comprehend. -Some sympathetic and understanding, some shallow and intolerant, etc. Watch the backgrounds for humorous clues, and little pieces of dialog and music. Once you catch on, it's got lots of laughs, and even some insights.
