Yes, I saw that movie.  I guess I haven't been around long enough to be 
familiar with your "silly philosophy."  The movie makes me wonder about 
the issue of continuity of identity.  What a brain teaser.

Aside from that and in spite of the movie's merits (great script and 
acting) -- what happened to the sound mix?  That horrible score drowned 
out the dialogue in many places.  I wish the Nolans could commission a 
better score and get the sound remixed. -- Thomas
