    Are there choices you have made that you wish you had made differently?  If so, what would your life look like now if you had taken the other path?  And most importantly, what can you do now to correct your course and get to where you wish that you had gone?

    Do you believe that everything happens for a reason, or that there is no particular reason or meaning but rather endless random possibilities?

      I fall somewhere in the middle.  I don’t believe in fate, as in every event and outcome is already preordained by some higher being or the universe itself.  On the other hand, there is an order to things like evolution.  Existence is the result of unique chemical combinations of elements and the laws of physics, the extent of which the human race does not yet fully grasp.  In short, I believe there is order to the universe but it still meanders through infinite possibilities, which may or may not exist in parallel universes.  All we can do is make the most of the existence that we live in.

    Dumbfounded!  Not because I don’t understand - understanding is hardly the point here -  but rather because I am struck dumb and in awe of this gorgeous, profound, mystifying film.  What does it mean?!  Does it matter what it means?!  Is there meaning at all, or only love and loss and railroad tracks leading one way or the other?  Ordinarily, I am a lover of clarity, but for the 2 plus hours I watched Mr. Nobody, I was fully taken by its hypnotic surrealism and provocative paradoxes.  Like a zen koan in ravishing technicolor, a feast for the eyes, the emotions, the mind and the soul.  There are few things I love more than a well told story that entertains and simultaneously stimulates deep reflection and introspection .  A new addition to the favorites list.
