    This is seriously underrated performance by Kevin Spacey. It has been years saw I originally saw this movie. I forgot how good Spacey was in it. The scenes where he is hypnotized are truly remarkable and show off how good of an actor Spacey really is. The story itself is a little basic and at times a tad predictable but the performance is so strong it more than helps make up for it. I am willing to give a bit of a ratings bump will move it from a 6/10 to a 7/10 because of Spacey's performance.

    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…

    Very uncomfortable cause of the porn movie soundtrack. The spiritual ideas aren't THAT nice and it still has a terrible and completely childish concept of the planet K-Pax.

    K-PAX look's dated but the movie itself is not (understand) Kevin Spacey gives a phenomenal performance even if the film is it a little too average.

    There are actors that can make even the most implausible of characters work. Kevin Spacey has just that quality that he brings to every bit of work he does, whether it be as The President in the excellent House Of Cards or as an apparent alien in this under-seen gem of a film from 2001.
    K-PAX is the planet that Spacey's character prot claims to come from when he is committed to a psychiatric hospital under the care of Jeff…

    Kevin Spacey plays a mental patient who believes he is from the planet K-Pax. He was obviously staring at women's sanitary products when he thought of that one. (Typecasting, eh?) Jeff Bridges tries to talk sense into him. You might wonder when he's going to splutter, 'Chicken Tikka' (from RIPD) and 'Call me Roy.' Iain Softley directs. Predictably, it was a box-office flop. Spacey thought British directors were supposed to be good. Look at Sam Mendes, he helmed American Beauty.

    Read the script - please!

    A semi-interesting concept is somewhat ruined by a sub-par execution and lengthy scenes that seem to go nowhere. The acting by the two leads is quite good, as are some of the more interesting scenes, but the ultimate reveal is a bit disappointing, though the ambiguous ending is suitable. The mental hospital scenes have a 'been there, done that' feel to them.

    I heard about this film on the Cinema Scumbags podcast and before it was removed from Netflix I decided to check it out. This was actually very intriguing. I enjoyed the concept and the acting was well executed. This film is underrated in my opinion.

    Leaving Netflix on 9/1. Underrated flick starring Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges. Kind of an interesting mash-up of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Starman." Spacey is a psychiatric patient who claims to be an alien from another universe. Bridges plays his doctor who is trying to uncover his real past, despite being tempted to believe him because he is so convincing. Missed this one when it first came out, glad I finally caught up with it.
