Dick Laurent is dead.
I’d only seen this film in bits and pieces on television before and strangely that viewing experience really added to the feeling of déjà vu evoked by the film. I love Bill Murray. I love the groundhog. I love the way the film explores every possible idea we may have for how Phil may move forward. And I love the way the film manages to find meaning in human connection.
That, and by my reckoning Phil’s written a lot of cheques he can’t cash come February 3rd.
