Quirky, intelligent, fulfilling
6 April 2012 | by sotan-1See all my reviews

This one is for people who both feel and think deeply. The writing is original, the acting is superb, the cinematography is virtuosic. That someone would think of writing and producing a film about a neurotic man who collects obsolete things which incorporates end-of-the-world discussion and Buddhist philosophy, then somehow imagining that people would want to watch it, is simply astounding. Even more astounding is that the movie is engrossing and not at all depressing - instead it is very much life affirming and a profound pleasure to watch. It moves slowly (a good thing) and it forgoes the typical Hollywood emotional overkill. One in a million!
