Storyline

From 11:22 to 12:06 we can follow everything that happens to Charlie Metcalf (played by Ray Liotta), a patient who is at death's door. We are shown the minutiae of a treatment which are usually glossed over in the "regular" episodes, interlaced with images from Charlie's delusions which give an insight into the regrets he has about his wasted life.

Beautiful, touching episode
21 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Normally, name guest stars have now become a joke on television. However, Ray Liotta bucked that trend, brought a heart-wrenching, heart-breaking performance, and won himself a well-deserved Emmy for it.

It also didn't hurt that there was brilliant acting all around (regardless of Dr. Pratt acting more like Dr. Prick, more so than usual, I think) and the cinematography and art direction were simply beautiful.

Just a thought: anyone familiar with the half-hour film from the 60s that was featured in "The Twilight Zone" based off of Ambrose Bierce's short story "Occurance at Owl Creek Bridge"? The episode eerily reminded me of it, this time with sound and dialogue, but still kind of trippy, heavily symbolic, escapist, and ultimately tragic. If you like this episode, look up that film. It's in the public domain, so free downloads can be found across the net with no legal worries.
