K-PAX (Theatrical Release USA 2001)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

K-Pax requires mental involvement and full attention to detail. It’s a sit down and watch film that does not give allowance for missing a scene as the story is a tightly woven piece of art…a ‘think’ movie…no getting up to make popcorn while the movie runs. Both Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey ‘strut’ their acting skills in each scene and terrifically compliment each other without upscaling in a single scene. This well-written story is a product that is an actor and director’s dream come true. A good film to add to the home video library because it can be watched again and again…good entertainment piece for guests.  Don’t forgo this one due to its lack-luster title…it far outshines the title.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Good film to add to the home video library. The movie is an absorbing watch from beginning to end and works like a very good mystery. The ending perfectly creates and invites discussion about its meaning/interpretation. It’s a wonderful watch from beginning to end. Thank you to everyone involved in making this movie happen.
