An interesting depiction of death

Bill, a very wealthy and important person is about to receive an unexpected visit from a very unexpected person. The guy in question is no other than Death itself (as Joe Black), who came to "collect" him. Thankfully, Joe isn't in a hurry and the longer Bill is able to keep him entertained, the longer he lives. Thus, Bill must integrate Joe in his family, buying himself time to fix the remaining problems in his life.

It features a lengthy but interesting plot about a man who must keep his integrity while the impersonated death infiltrates into his life and family, threatening him with every move. It's twisted and nonlinear, maintaining suspense and interest throughout its length, keeping you lusting for the upcoming finale. Its love story brings some needed romance into the picture, completing the wonderful atmosphere transmitted by this film. A very enjoyable movie!

Draggy, draggy, draggy...

The opening almost caused me to turn this movie off. So boring, long, draggy, oh dear, oh dear! You'd think that a film starring the great Anthony Hopkins and the popular Brad Pitt would be marvellous, but it is NOT. And the gal cast as Hopkins' "beautiful" daughter is dreadful, irritating and annoying. How could such a mis-casting take place in 1998? Were there no other candidates? SO MANY times during this picture, I found myself yelling "Get on with it!". So often it ground almost to a halt, seemed like a rehearsal with all parties hung over. Anthony Hopkins has certainly refined to a fine art, the skill of s-p-e-a-k-i-n-g s-l-o-w-l-y. Overall, this movie has some merit, but far, far less than it should have had. A major disappointment.

A disrespectful ridiculement of death and sorrow.

A ridiculous movie in all aspects. If this movie should have worked, it would probably needed someone like Kurosawa to pull it off. A more dreamlike, bizarre setting. The Angel of Death, taking people's lives personally, doubting his own role and falling in love with a beautiful woman? Has he not seen beautiful women yet? A ridiculous question, about a scaring subject matter. This movie had to have been more dreamlike, absurd, to work at any level. Then it could have been a serious tale about loss and loss of life... But it becomes like a bad comedy instead. Do not waste your time on this.
