... Through the years i've seen movies which have impressed me in a way where i got a feeling that there were intelligent movie makers out there, saying and doing something relevant. Movies like; Harold & Maude, Catch-22, Bad Boy Bubby, Nashville, And the ship sails on, Last exit to Brooklyn... were like that to me.

Now i've seen LPCI two times, first in 1999 and now 7 years later. It's impact on me was the same on both viewings.
It is the most human and least pretentious movie iv'e seen. It has the purest aesthetics mixed with the most honest philosophy, i've witnessed in any art. It reveals the essence of man in the universe, in a way which is unabsorbed by trivialities. It is very relevant, very humble and very beautiful, and I think it has a potential of curing stupidity.
