Storyline

A story of two men to have an insatiable appetite for arguing on any subject and pontificating on areas of which they have little or no understanding. The Glass Jar is a character driven dark comedy that lets us stand back and watch two characters, John and Tony, set for us their well thought out opinions on everything from their deepest fears to the effects of Christianity on to the sport of hockey. In the tradition of "Waiting for Godot" and "My Dinner with Adre", "The Glass Jar" is a little more than a conversation between two men, It highlights the comic insanity of uninformed beliefs.

A very clever film.
8 September 1999 | by (Venice) – See all my reviews

This film is very well acted and directed. It forces you to think about who these people are and where they are going. I thought the plot, although subtle, is very compelling. The ending was a complete surprise. I would highly recomend this movie to people who want to think.
