Good musical score, especially the jazz.

The topics the film brings up are very thought-provoking, especially the idea of how people treat other people as objects in everyday life.

This film explores the hidden thoughts of men in an anonymous environment where nobody will ever question or judge. If you are a fan of surreal dreamlike scenes where past and present co-exist in the same shot, go ahead and buy this one. Of particular interest is a man who tries to justify an affair and another who explores the demeaning job of his father. As this female college researcher says "we already know how women were affected by the feminist movement, but nobody ever asks men."

The person that categorized this as a comedy should be fired. Yes, there are moments of wry humor, but I don't think that Wallace intended any of this to be funny. The book, and this movie tore my soul out at the root and left me shaking. It was very well done.

JK is a fantastic writer, producer and directory. Loved every minute of this clever, quirky, well-excecuted, actually brilliant film. My favorite two parts: First,the scene with the African American son and his father, a wash-room attendant in a tony men's club. It's a play within a play, a poignant, exquisite poem. My husband and I were speechless when it was over. I would own the DVD just for this alone. Second, I loved how John completely trashed our image of him as an adorable, woman-loving charmer on "The Office," the perfect boyfriend, husband, etc. I'll never look at him the same again. What a hoot - fabulous soliloquy and great way to end the film. I'm recommending this to all my girlfriends and the men who can handle it.
