For some reason "Meet Joe Black" has received mixed reviews from critics and moviegoers. In my opinion, this remake of the 1934 film "Death Takes a Holiday" was one of the best films I have seen in quite some time. The movie has gained a reputation for being long and drawn out because it is 3 hours long. I did not find the film to be drawn out at all, and time flew by for me when watching this film. Brad Pitt is actually a very good actor and shows it in this film. Pitt accurately portrayed how Death would react to the world around him with his endless curiousity and naive behavior. The scene where Death discovers peanut butter for the first time is priceless!! Anthony Hopkins was great as usual, and turns in another oscar worthy performance as Bill Parrish. You come to legitimately feel for his character because you know that it is only a matter of time before the inevitable is coming. The thing that impressed me most about the film, was that the romantic story between Death and Claire Forlani's character Susan is extremely well done, despite the gloom setting that Death's presence brings. I also highly recommend picking up the soundtrack to this film. The musical score used was outstanding.
The only piece of advice I can give with this film, is to ignore its reputation and give it a shot. Overall, "Meet Joe Black" is a captivating and touching film with great performances given from the actors and an incredible soundtrack.
A solid 5 stars...
One grip that I do have is that the DVD doesn't contain many extras. It does have an outakes section and Bios on the cast and filmmakers but no commentary or deleted scenes (although with the length of this movie maybe there were no deleted scenes). The movie itself more than makes up for this though. So if you don't mind buying a DVD that does have many extras this movie is definitely worth it.

A beautiful and poignant film, like a well-cut jewel. In my opinion, Brad Pitt's finest role (he has to act up to Anthony Hopkins' skill level). Well done.Published 6 months ago by dragonworks
