Prot's departure for his home system, which is "near the constellation Lyra", is scheduled for 5:51 a.m., July 27th. On that day in New York City the sun rises at 5:48, while Lyra itself is beginning to set in the west (and eventually before sunrise as the year wears on). This implies that Prot must "grab" an Earth-skimming beam of sunlight while he still has a clear line-of-sight to K-Pax, in a rapidly narrowing window of opportunity. See more »
Prot removes his glasses and lays them down so that the top of the glasses are laying on the table. Later, when Mark Powell rushes in, the glasses are lying right-side-up and facing the opposite direction. See more »
Doctor. Doctor. Doctor. Doctor. How many doctors are there on this planet?

After the credits, there's a view of the stars and then Dr. Mark Powell looks through the lens of his telescope as if he is looking for the stars of K-PAX. He walks in his yard, and the movie ends. See more »
Personally, I think Kevin Spacey is one of the greatest actors of his generation, maybe the greatest. This in combination with another amazing actor named Jeff Bridges, it can't be bad. And that's exactly what this movie is! "K-PAX" is one of the most pleasant surprises of the latest years. To start with has the movie a brilliantly written story. It's part of what makes the movie so great. The other aspect that contributes to the greatness of the movie is the acting. The combination Spacey-Bridges really works.
This was already the second time I saw the movie and I'm sure it won't be the last time. "K-PAX" has everything. There are moments which are extremely funny, parts that remind of a true thriller and others which reminds of high-class drama. I think this movie deserves a much higher rating and a lot more awards. Great movie!
