Walter: [narrating] Heaven or hell? People don't find out where they're headed until they die. But I know. I know where everyone's going. Because I'm the one who makes the decision.

Strange, quirky, and fun.
29 March 2015 | by rockwilder0000See all my reviews

An excellent film reminiscent of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Being John Malkovich". Strange, quirky, and original. I am truly baffled by the criticisms of people asking, "Is it a comedy? Is it a drama?" Whatever emotions it evoked in you or themes you identified with, that's what the film is. "Watler" reminds me of "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou". It will engage the feely-parts of anyone who has ever had to cope with loss or wondered "am I crazy? Am I okay?" but never intended to take itself too seriously. Don't think too hard about it. Just drink it in. I lost my father when I was young and most films exploring that relationship are pretty pedantic. Kudos to "Walter" for keeping it weird.
