Goofs

There are two explanations for why Love, Time, and Death were not seen in the videos. One is that they were removed with editing software. That would be true if they were only actors. Otherwise, they could actually be Love, Time, and Death pretending to be actors, because they were also helping Howard's friends with their issues. The PI was hired to follow Howard, so would film any action on his part. She may not have seen Time, Love, or Death because they can appear to whomever they wish and remain invisible to everyone else. They only interact with the main characters. See more »

Critics need to get a life
26 August 2017 | by jasonperronesrSee all my reviews

Negative reviews kept me out of the theater. Thankfully my mom talked me into watching this. What a beautiful, heartbreaking, well written nearly perfect movie. And the soundtrack is gorgeous and rips your heart out. There is nothing negative to be said. The performances are splendid across the board.
