The philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, in his book "Fear and Trembling", relates a story about the
ancient Greek thinker, Heraclitus. Heraclitus had argued, quite effectively, that one cannot step
into the same river twice. However, Heraclitus had a disciple who was not satisfied to simply accept
the conclusions reached by his mentor. The disciple insisted on continuing to push the arguments further to
see where they would ultimately lead. He did so, and this led
him to the position that one cannot step into a river even once. "Poor Heraclitus, to have such a
disciple", concludes Kierkegaard. If Kierkegaard were alive today, I think he would appreciate the main theme
of this quirky little cult classic movie.
I gave this movie a rating of 4 stars.
