Most people that watch this movie don't see anything fantastic about it. Most people would say "okay, it was a good movie, but I wouldn't watch it again" or "I have no idea of what happened in this movie because I fell asleep in it".
Honestly, most people are completely mistaken.
This is not only a movie - it's a piece of art. It's the kind of movie that you watch and it will haunt ... read more

Honestly, this movie is far from being flawless. There are too many characters and many of them are not developped enough (for example, Lena Olin is barely seen in the movie and barely utters a word) and also, some parts of the story just don't work. In spite of these issues, I still enjoyed it. I like the directing, the cast is very interesting (Don Cheadle, Ryan Gosling, Jena Malone, Lena Olin, ... read more

"TV Reporter: Why did you do it, Leland? Leland: Because of the sadness. TV Reporter: What sadness? Whose sadness? Leland: Your sadness. Leland: You want a why. Well, maybe there isn't one. Maybe... Maybe this is just something that happened. Leland: This one is something a friend of mine said to me. "You have to believe that life is more than the sum of its parts, kiddo." I remember it right now to the "kiddo" part. But when I think about what she said, the same thing always comes into my he"

An acquired taste

“Honestly, this movie is far from being flawless. There are too many characters and many of them are not developped enough (for example, Lena Olin is barely seen in the movie and barely utters a word) and also, some parts of the story just don't work. In spite of these issues, I still enjoyed it. I like the directing, the cast is very interesting (Don Cheadle, Ryan Gosling, Jena Malone, Lena Olin, Kevin Spacey, Michelle Williams, Sherilyn Fenn) and 3 actors give very good perfomances (Ryan Gosling, Don Cheadle and Kevin Spacey though, his character is not developped enough to my taste). So, it is is definitely an acquired taste.” read more

"The angst file: Leland: And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff the"

Favourite Movie Quotes. (33 movies items)

" Pearl Madison: "I'm only human, man." Leland: "It's funny how people only say that after they do something bad. I mean, you never hear someone say, "I'm only human" after they rescue a kid from a burning building." Albert T. Fitzgerald: "I recall when our lives were unusual and electric. When we burned with something close to fire. But now we sway to a different rhythm. Lives lived without meaning or even directed hope. The passage of time measured only by loss. Loss of a job, loss of a mini"
