These are the dreams of a man stepping out of this world, perhaps never more lucid and full of life.

The way Ruiz uses such giddy flourishes in the name of looking back on one's life is both thrillingly irreverent and surprisingly moving.

Ruiz's final film is one of the cinema's grandest, most graceful farewells to life.

A bizarre and baroque meditation on death, memory and the passage of time that ranks among the director's more cryptic works (of which there are several in his whopping 100+ feature filmography), though it does offer up a few pleasurable moments.
