    Watched this for my psych class, and, um, wow... not good.

    I was under the impression that a lot of people liked this movie, and I'm not sure if that's true or not, but if it is - why? For the first hour or so, K-PAX is fine. Nothing about the film is particularly gripping or intriguing, but Spacey kept me at least mildly entertained. Of course the depiction of mental illness within the other characters is unsavory to say…

    100th film I've rated on letterboxd and Oh my, what a fantastic movie it was. A curious movie that makes you think and does not fail to entertain, with amazing performances from Jeff Bridges, although Kevin Spacey steals the show in every scene. A fantastic movie that I absolutely loved.

    this film starts so well, but ends up ruining a great premise, with a random murder plot. ugh, almost good.

    Kevin Spacey plays this guy who's all like "I'm so super cool and the planet I come from is so much cooler than Earth. You don't even know how cool it is. And how cool I am, because I'm from there." He wears sunglasses to really cement in your mind how much of a cool guy he is. But then you find out that maybe he really is human, but maybe he's not, ooh wow mystery. Jeff Bridges is really…

    Starts out well enough, but seem to dip in the middle when Prote is strangely susceptible to hypnotism, yet huge doses of mind bending drugs do nothing what so ever!
    We also find that "Seeing" in ultraviolet light is quickly put on the back burner, and disregarded.
    In reality this would obviously mean Prote IS in fact an alien!
    So, although muddled at times, the good parts are good but the dated parts are awful!
    Could've been better all round

    Sure I can tell you that today I listened to the Firewater album and saw
    "K-Pax," but these are just sorted facts. Facts that in 60 years I can’t tell my grandkids. You think they’ll care that I saw "K-Pax" on October 26th? Do you think "K-Pax" will even be around in 60 years? (I saw it, trust me it won’t).

    I've read reviews of this film describing it as "smart" and commenting that the viewer was "engrossed". I had to laugh. Were they being serious? Spacey and Bridges are both good, admittedly, but it just felt so mediocre. I was interested at times, but it never lived up to anything.

    La forma de contarlo es demasiado chorra para tomarla en serio, porque no puedo con ciencia ficción sobre extraterrestres que vienen a aleccionarnos desde su supuesta superioridad moral y menos aún con los dramas sentimentaloides carentes de sutileza. Al menos Spacey y Bridges tienen química cuando comparten escena.

    K Pax has aged well, but it's starting to turn.

    The essentiel 90's movie. A story that movie that should have lasted 1h20 ends up lasting about two hours.

    The music has aged terribly, the small timid piano and over echoed glockenspiel really remind you that the movie isn't that good.

    There are problems in the story line such as Prote is not affected by certain mind controlling drugs and yet is susceptible to hypnotism. A scene that must have…

    K-PAX has a pretty intriguing setup and fortunately, the film lives up to it pretty well. The story is that a psychiatrist is given a patient who claims to be an alien from the planet K-PAX, and who has knowledge that not only seems impossible for any average person to know, but also begins to sound very convincing the more that time passes. K-PAX's biggest success is the way it handles the story. Kevin Spacey plays the "alien" Prot and…

    Seeing Kevin Spacey acting with a dog is incredible acting.
