Somehow I can't hate this. Then again, I can't really like it, either.

Tom Hanks kneeling before the moon is one of the most moving moments in cinema. This is one of my favorite films.

Spirituality and Practice

A wild, weird, and wonderful adult fairy tale about a man who travels halfway around the world to discover why his life is still worth living.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Joe's unfortunate prognosis and ensuing plight may be completely imagined, though his motivations and lessons are realistically applicable. Joe Versus the Volcano is a work meant to transcend, and it does so with poetic semblance.
