Great acting, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Clever

See it if Message roundelay built on four scenes connecting thematically by views of the stations of mortality. "We could call it spiritual medicine."

Don't see it if Two-hours-and-forty minutes of seated talking heads espousing opinions of the mortal coil where the real drama emerges in the last moments. Read more

Weak showcase, Preachy, Needs serious cuts, Melodramatic mud pies

See it if you'd like a nearly 3-hour melodrama w few interesting ideas & moments; sees death as a "new creation." Nice sets, costumes.

Don't see it if you'd dislike 3 hrs of amateur philosophy, w 1st act in cafe, backed by grating piped-in musack or a script desperate for X-Acto blade cuts. Read more
