paul giamatti dumping the spit bucket over himself is my spirit animal
There is beauty and poetry in the mundane repetition of life. The unusual coincidences that we never pay attention to are symbolic. My theory is that this is a dream with elements of his real life (Wizard of Oz) or self-induced simulation (Vanilla Sky) to help provide him with inspiration for his work. Either way I love artsy movies that are open for your own interpretation.
