At first I was a little hesitant in regards to my feelings about the film. Soon enough, however, I understood and it all made sense. The film is a work of art in the way it combines story-lines so seamlessly and infuses themes of idolatry and philosophy; dreams and fears. An all-around great film that clearly has something to say.
Every time I watch this movie I cry because everything Lester did was stop being hypocritical. And when he finally manages to feel good, he is killed by hypocrisy (of society). In the end, Lester describing the one second of eternity of his life before his death is of an irreparable sensibility. Masterpiece!
