The protagonist reminisces about a movie he'd seen, in which Lazarus resents being brought back to life by Jesus. For this flashback, the movie uses a clip from the 1988 film "The Last Temptation of Christ," starring Willem Dafoe. Later, during the fundraising scene at the garden party, Dafoe can be spotted in a cameo as one of the applauding patrons. See more »
What was it? Where did it come from? The need to constantly be seeking some unknown source of fulfillment; the hunger for experiences in life that always made me want to be everywhere except where I actually was.

Who wants to freeze forever?
This science fiction tale (with a moral standpoint and quite a few serious questions about mortality) is done really well. It may not qualify for a classic, but it's still encapsulates a lot of things that we've come to love from these types of movies. That's literally to a point, where you may recognize where some of the inspiration has been drawn from. But it has enough to say on its own too.
It may seem cliché at points in the story and you may feel like you've seen similar things before, but it's tough to be completely original. It's hard enough to be good in what you're trying to say. And this makes a lot of points about living and dying. And being able to accept things. Some things do not translate as good though and it's tough for the main actor to convey certain feelings that none of us have gone through (to that extend). Still more than solid and very gripping
