A little gardener as bodhisattva

on 5/6/2012

When I bought my elderly parents their first VCR, I had BEING THERE in the deck ready to play when I hooked it up for them(the second movie was "Harvey"). FORREST GUMP(the movie only)hints at the essence of Chance the gardener when Gump is running, & doesn't know why everybody's following him. Graham Chapman's Brian Cohn in LIFE OF BRIAN doesn't know why and doesn't want any followers. Chance is the true idiot savant who doesn't know or care that people are hanging on his every word. Both movie and film are gentle, peaceful looks at modern society, the media, and the messianic fixations therein. This was the next-to-last film for both Melvyn Douglas and Peter Sellers, and is also the first film I can remember that finishes with outtakes, as Sellers busts up trying to get out a line. BEING THERE is a wonderful film with a wonderful cast, and it is as deep as you want it to be. Take it at face value as the story of a man who is misunderstood by everyone, and just enjoy it. After Jerzy Kosinski's tortured youth, that he could come up with this still amazes me.
