This is a modern day masterpiece. Roger Ebert said it best, it’s so effortless and so easy going you don’t realize how good it is until you see it a few more times… not a lot of films age so well and I think this will be seen as a classic in the years to come.
Part Bill Murray vehicle, part light-hearted comedy, part Twilight Zonesque character study/morality tale, part existential/spiritual thesis… it has a lot to say about human nature and how we should appreciate the everyday and appreciate the relationships we have with others… even the casual strangers.
I agree with MARQ.. I hope Criterion comes out with a special edition …maybe in about 10-20 years.
