User Reviews

This was a very good movie.
5 December 2005 | by perrinesnakeSee all my reviews

I am not a movie person. I don't go to a lot of movies, and I don't make movies. I am an agricultural person. But I know a good thing when I see one. I was on a Mormon mission in Dijon, France, so I am familiar with a lot of art. I think this movie was a piece of art. I cannot agree with the ending, and I don't know why it had to be so, although I do admit that it was quite dramatic. I surprised myself by liking the musical pastiche in the middle of Vincent going through his narcoleptic sequence. Vincent, Sean, John, even Diana, were serious people, although John is an example of what is wrong with academic America (not true of Brigham Young University, I note) who think they don't have to pay attention to anybody. I wonder what affect this movie would have upon a young person watching it. I cannot recommend this film, no matter how well made it is or how artistic or how good the acting. Maybe as an anti-example of what type of life to avoid.
