A dark comedy worth watching
10 March 2006 | by (China) – See all my reviews

I caught a section of it on cable and had to wait another month to see the whole thing at 5am, but it turn out to be worth it.

The main character is stuck in a rut and can't find his way out. Entertaining notions of suicide get him through the absurdity around him.

Its not an easy issue to explore but its conveyed well with regular comical injections without downplaying anyone who may have considered suicide themselves. The relationships with friends, ex girlfriends and parents make the film worth seeing.

Embarking on a spiritual journey of sorts in L.A. he seems to be looking for something to talk him into or out of committing suicide. As a screen writer he is able to dismiss all the fears he arises as he is just researching an idea for a movie.
