"I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me, but it's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life."
Has a strange effect on me this movie, I kinda become mesmorised, cant move, wont move, must get drink from kitchen but cant take eyes off screen !!! I've always rated this highly due to this fact.. Just a great story of how strange life can be and how weird people really are.. Some really good performances with a bit of a dramatic ending..Must see.
This is a film about an apparent ordinary American family and how their deeply seated problems can really fuck them up. The father, played so brilliantly by Kevin Spacey, develops a liberating fuck-it attitude, while everything around him goes to shit. The film suggests that being normal isn't so bad, but it also asks the question, what the fuck is normal in our current society?
