Quite simply: A Masterpiece.,
This review is from: K-Pax [DVD]  (DVD)
I watched this on television last night and found it one of the most uplifting films I have seen in recent times, and possibly ever. A deeply philosophical and often metaphorical work, superbly performed by the entire cast. Kevin Spacey is a revelation in this film, and I would agree that Jeff Bridges has never been better.
I don't feel that the story is open ended, as there are many clues (some more subtle than others) as to the truth about who/what Prot actually is. I won't spoil things by saying any more here, but if you missed the point first time round, have another look at it and take note of Prot's explanations and jokes about himself when being interview by the Doctor early on in the film, and what he says with regard to the photo of Robert Porter, near the end.
To sum up: If you haven't seen this film, you don't know what you're missing! If you have and didn't understand it - please watch it again! If you don't like it, then I guess no film can please everybody. Personally, I'd give it a galaxy of stars (sorry, couldn't resist it). Simply brilliant.
