Definitely long, but graceful - not focused on Brad's physical appearance, but his character's true display of curiosity. Monty Markham (Death Takes a Holiday) did this movie way back, although not the 1st release, & was passionate then. Can watch Meet Joe Black over & over again (& have). Claire Folani is the captivating role in this film & as far as I can recall Anthony Hopkins hasn?t bombed a role yet. Brad is on the cover but, again he?s really not the focus of the film ? his character only examines the purposes of human life. Watch it again very closely & see if you have a different perspective.
