This has to be without a doubt one of the most bizarre pictures I have ever seen. In a positive way, though, since few people in the film industry today who aren't named Tim Burton care to be bizarre. You have to wonder if it's a real world at all the characters are inhabiting, or if it's all just someone's imagination (possibly Forrest Gump's given Robin Wright Penn's presence--just had to point it out). Regardless, I love the title song "The Closing of the Year"; radio stations should air it more come the holidays.

Did you find it strange to watch as well.

I was actually never able to sit through this whole thing. It was bizarre for me but not in a good way. I was just never ever able to get into this one. And I am a big fan of Robin Williams, but the story was just lacking for me.

This is notable as the film that snapped director Barry Levinson's winning streak, as it actually turned out to be his dream project for over a decade, and was originally going to be his directing debut, but held it off since the technology hadn't been improved yet. While Levinson did score a few more successes (Disclosure, Sleepers, Wag the Dog, Liberty Heights, Bandits) after this, it would mark the beginning of a downturn in his career.

Yeah, Leo, what is it with Barry Levinson's career? I saw Rock the Kasbah recently, and it was just awful, a comedy without laughs that completely wasted a good cast and did the impossible: It made Bill Murray unfunny and unlikeable. Levinson, who did a wonderful job with similar black humor in Wag the Dog, seemed completely lost. His direction and the tone of the film were all over the place. The only one who escaped was Zooey Deschanel, who was out of the film, never to return, after the first fifteen minutes.
