When I first watched Meet Joe Black a few years back, I liked it for what it was: an entertaining romantic movie. But it's been recently that I watched it again, and took the time to watch carefully, analizing content and acting. Despite being a romantic movie, Meet Joe Black offers a lot to reflect upon: man's mortality and our belief in inmortality. It definitely has a message. It really stroke me when almost at the end, Anthony Hopkins almost needs to beg Brad Pitt (Death) to take him with him: "It's hard to let go, isn't it? That's life". Those words had a great impact on me because it made me realize how precious life is, and how little we think about this wonderful gift. Also, the fact that Death is depicted here as a positive character confronts the traditional view of Death as something bad and negative. It teaches us how to "love" Death (e.g: Brad Pitt's words, "Susan, thanks for loving me"). I think M.J.B teach us all how to accept the fact that mortality is part of our human nature and since it is so, how to make the most of life. Also, in the same line of Ghost, it emphasizes good vs evil in life, and the rewards it may hold in the afterlife. I must congratulate the cast on their performances, particularly, both Mr. Hopkins and Brad Pitt. Interpreting Death incarnated in a human body must have been difficult, and same applies to the character performed by Mr. Hopkins in his relation to Death. Both characters are very touching and the bond the develop all through the movie too. Great movie.
