    I think the film just isn’t that good (despite a few impressive visual sequences) and chalk its popularity up to it being the 60s (anybody who prefers Altman’s M*A*S*H to Nichol’s Catch-22 is simply wrong in my book). But then I couldn’t find anything worthwhile in Garden State, and lots of people liked that.

    I do find it interesting that Ben in the book is supposed to be much more of a Robert Redford type and so the film was going in a very different direction.
