Joe is plucked from a meanlingless life, into an adventure whose final chapter must mean the end of his life. He has one month to live like he has never lived. And he does.
Who else would ever have the excuse and need to purchase luggage like that!
I believe this film is really for a select group of people who want to live the key line "My father says almost the whole world's asleep. Everybody you know, everybody you see, everybody you talk to. He says only a few people are awake. And they live in a state of constant, total amazement."
Its for people who don't need any sort of drug to feel high. For people who just need an occasional reminder on what life's priorities really are.
This film was not a big box office hit when it was released and the critics were less than complimentary. I think it is very underrated, probably because there are no special effects or overt sex and violence.
It is a simple storyline and has a happy ending. Works for me!
My favorite Scene is where Joe purchases luggage. I would like to find that store.
Luggage Salesman: This is our premier steamer trunk, it's all-handmade, only the finest materials. It's even watertight, tight as a drum. If I had the need, and the wherewithal, Mr. Banks, this would be my trunk of choice.
Joe Banks: I'll take four of them.
Luggage Salesman: May you live to be a thousand years old, sir.
Right after that I would pick the moon on the ocean scene; here Joe is in the vast evening ocean and a huge moon is rising on the horizon.
So get out your orange soda sit on your trunks and watch.
