Goofs

Keith gives Natalie an American-made 4-barrel carburetor to rebuild. Later we see it being install on the engine of Keith's 1962 Chevrolet C-10 pickup truck. However, the accompanying overhaul instruction sheet is clearly shown to be for a single barrel Solex PICT-3 carburetor. The sheet even says it is for a 1968-72 Type 1 or a 1968-71 Type 2. These are, respectively, a Volkswagen Beetle or Karmann Ghia, and a Volkswagen Microbus. See more »

Do not miss this. This will reach out to your soul and touch the person inside of you
24 September 2008 | by dimndSee all my reviews

One of the best movies of all times. No kidding.

Well, to start with, I've done just watching this and I can't even start to describe this... I mean, there are movies that I say are "great" or "amazing", but I always forget that when I say those words I mean something completely different. Because in comparison to Keith, those greats and amazings are just OKs and goods (maybe).

This movie is simply mindblowing. It brought up all the good in me, the kind of good that I almost forget I have. The kind of good that makes you wanna help people. The kind of good that makes you think and remember that my problems are NOTHING in comparison to what some people might face. The kind of good that reminds me that every single day, every minute, every second I live, all that time, those days that I sometimes (quite a lot) think are boring. All that some people don't have. I have the health, the time and so many opportunities that I long time forgot to appreciate.

This is the kind of movie that makes you remember to cherish every second, to leave a mark on life of every person, to have no time to waste, because one day it might just all end. Just like that.

I'm sorry that my review is kind of a mess, but it's hard to express everything I feel at the moment.

And going back to the movie. It is amazing. Brilliantly shoot. Brilliantly casted and acted. Written so well I can't even describe. I'm going to see this in the cinema, I'm going to buy a DVD (and keep a copy of any other format it'll be released in). This is something that you WILL regret missing and thank the almighty after you'll see it. Amazing...
