Change the way you look at the world.
Prot is a patient at a mental hospital who claims to be from a far away Planet. His psychiatrist tries to help him, only to begin to doubt his own explanations.
“It's a shallow life that doesn't give a person a few scars.”
Our past and our mind are conjoined twins, teleporting thoughts and emotions back forth instantaneously, throughout our lifetime via their inseverable binding. Their time of birth is a few nanoseconds apart and even though they continue to co-exist from that moment on, they become fully cognizant of each other's significance and their mutual reliance only several years later. Our past is bestrewn with sweet, bittersweet and traumatic memories. It is an unchangeable, unavoidable record of occurrences, out of which the most prominent reverberations remain permanently etched in our minds, forever ready to be summoned at a moment's notice to affect us. These protuberant memories continually chisel our present…
The emotionally resonant ending of this film is kind of ruined now that upon this viewing of it I recognised the very young Aaron Paul appearing in its final thirty seconds as a diminutive figurant with one negligible line - that made me chuckle in disbelief. The plot of K-PAX somewhat resembles that of The Man from Earth, which I watched earlier this week, as both films revolve around a character that convincingly claims to be different from the rest of mankind (a 14.000-year-old who never died in the latter, an alien from the planet K-PAX in the former). The difference between the two movies is that K-PAX drools much less on the concept itself and only engages in a…

K-PAX is a beautiful movie with twist and turns that can be interpreted in many ways.
Kevin Spacey does an amazing performance and makes the movie his own. Spacey manages to be do the best peformance in this movie despite having a faceless expression but he turns that to his favor by making the strong scenes stronger.
But Spacey isn't the only one who makes this movie great
the camerawork is fantastic with clever use of the light in both from a apperance and story standpoint.
The movies have alot of great scenes between Spacey and Birdges that can be dramatic but also really funny.
I see many mixed opinons about this movie and I can understand people that don't like it because some characters are used way to little but despite that I thought the movie was great!
I gave this film 1 star as a punishment rather than leave it unrated, all because it is obviously a remake or if not that then a re-imagining of Man Facing Southeast, and yet there is no credit at all anywhere in the film to indicate this. In fact, the makers of the film expressly denied having ever heard of Man Facing Southeast. With such an original story, that is highly unlikely. There is very little that I find more disgusting than stealing like this. All they had to do was add a credit.
Amazing story, Kevin Spacey is brilliant as always.
From the moment it begins the audience are engrossed within Iain Softley's fascinating, fully involving science fiction mystery. This sensitive story, adapted from Gene Brewer’s novel, follows an intriguing man who seeks to convince a psychiatrist that he is in fact an alien named Prot from a distant planet K-PAX.
It’s a gentle, yet powerful film that captivates the audience through the power of its storytelling alone. The constantly evolving, fully involving narrative drives towards a rewarding conclusion. There are several unexplained inconsistencies, the unfortunate consequence of such a complex science fiction narrative, but none are significant enough to sour this truly heartwarming experience.
Kevin Spacey’s central performance is one of his finest, but it’s more understated than the typical…
K-Pax is a good and touching drama with interesting story.
This film might seem dry to others, but the acting is great. Kevin Spacey does an amazing job at making you believe that he is an alien from another planet after he is taken to a mental facility. The psychiatrist starts to believe him. Do you believe him?
This is the movie that got me interested in the sci-fi genre as a kid. It keeps you wondering, and thinking, about what's really going on.
"How do you know right from wrong?"
"Every being in the universe knows right from wrong, Mark."
Kind of a weird one, but a perfect off-beat Spacey role.
I travel light too.
I loved this film. Simple, gentle but powerful performance by Kevin Spacey. Also liked the irony that Prot was being helped by Starman.
Would easily watch it again tomorrow.
Kevin spacey and Jeff bridges. How can you go wrong. Watching this is making me need to watch starman. Really worth the viewing. Watch it :)
I don't consider K-Pax a syfy flick. It is actually a drama, but with a very interesting story that caught my attention til the end, despite it was a little corny.
