When Alan wakes up lying on his bed after he cut open the lipoma, both his shirt and bed sheet are blood-soaked. Yet when he gets up, he can do so without the dried blood sticking together shirt and sheet. In addition, the supposedly dried blood on the sheet is red, while on the shirt it is brownish. See more »
[mimicking The Talking Heads in his music video TV commercial]
You may find yourself living in your garden shack. And you may find yourself not at home in your home. And you may find yourself looking for your large automobile. And you may find yourself without a beautiful house. Without a beautiful wife. And you may ask yourself "Well, how did I get here?"

Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.

A Hologram for the King: A good film. Besides: is there such thing as a bad Tom Hanks' film?
A good film about being 60, being alone, being abroad and being open-minded.
Tom Hanks is a troubled man sent to KSA to sell something on behalf of a big American Corporate. And there he clashes with Arabic Culture in his usual thoughtful and suspended-judgment way.
I won't tell you what happens, of course, but after a quick look to the other reviews (someone even claims to have fallen asleep) I understood that not everyone have liked it. And I'm surprised but I won't comment.
I would just say, for those who could possibly share my feelings, that this was a good film: interesting, clever and not slow at all. Just, maybe, a little different. Images are great and the story depicts nicely our difficult times. Besides: is there a such thing as a bad Tom Hanks' film?
