K-PAX (2001)

Film of the month is K-PAX. This is not a great movie, in that I would not say to someone, "K-PAX is a *great* movie. You have to see it or you will regret it in years to come."  It is a good movie in that it stars Kevin Spacey whom I think has yet to give a performance that is not above average, and to a lesser degree I think the same could be said of Jeff Bridges. But the real reason I liked K-PAX is that it does not lead the audience to a clear-cut resolution, but rather allows you to decide what the outcome really was. You might not leave the theatre arguing vehemently about what the movie means, but if you're like me, you will leave with a smile on your face and a willing conversational partner in the passenger seat on the drive home. You'll probably talk about the movie.
