Oh wow! Until now is the only time I ever felt sure about anything. My whole life never seems to catch up to that moment. But to be unsure, well, I don't know. What if there's no reason in your life to feel shitty, but you do anyway? No enemy to point at. What do you do then?

I thought this was a good movie all in all. The acting was good and so was the story line. It was a tale of a man who was trying to find himself and find happiness in his life, isn't this what we all are searching for in the end? The main character Gabe wanted to be a writer so he gave up everything to do this. I think sometimes people are over critical of movies and over analyze things...just sit back and enjoy the ride and try to find a moral to the story instead of finding all the flaws. because this is what is wrong with our society as a whole, we always look for the flaws. So i would definitely recommend this movie it was different from the mainstream blockbusters and had some deep meaning to it.
