After much ado, my brother finally took the time to watch this grand movie. Much to my horror his opinion on the movie was "it was a thinly-veiled satire of how therapists/doctors/intellectuals babble a lot"..."people putting mud on themselves..that was making fun of these theories on life." Okay, so I understand that people have different opinions on movies, that we interpret them differently, but come on! I tried to no avail to explain that it was a sincere conversation dealing with actual life issues, nihilism vs. existentialism, or are they in concert, etc. What I am wondering is, am I the fool who does not realize it's making fun of weirdos like me who actually do consider these things in their mind?
What is worse is that he is an actor, who "knows" more about this movie-making deal than me. Therefore perhaps his view of the movie is correct. Thoughts?
