Meet Joe Black Reviews - Metacritic
A goofy synopsis of the movie, Meet Joe Black starring Brad Pitt. Ahh yea the best part of the movie. Joe sits atop the stairway (and we are unsure if to heaven or hell) waiting for William. He shed tears as he gazes at the. A man (Anthony Hopkins) is visited by death (Brad Pitt). Death asks the man to show him the world so he can have a bit of the human experience. During his stay.
He also helps Bill regain control of his company, exposing Drew's underhanded business dealings to the board by claiming to be an agent of the Internal Revenue Service and threatening to put Drew in jail. At the party Bill makes his peace with his daughters. Susan tells Joe that she has loved him ever since that day in the coffee shop. Joe realises that Susan loves the unknown man, not him, and the realization crushes him slightly. Mastering his emotions powerfully he balks at telling Susan who he really is, although she seems to intuit his true identity.
Struggling to comprehend the enormity of the situation, Susan cannot label Joe as Death.
Meet Joe Black Movie Review Summary
She says finally, "You're. He promises her "you will always have what you found in the coffee shop. Fireworks explode in the distance while Susan watches Joe and her father walk out of view. Susan is stunned as "Joe" reappears alone, bewildered, this time as the young man from the coffee shop. She mentions a lot of famous people who will be there and they are walking among some very beautiful white columns while talking.
So we now know that William has not done too bad for himself. Then we meet Susan, his other daughter, who is younger and more beautiful and also less superficial about parties.
They are on some helicopter going somewhere and William tells her that maybe she should ditch Drew. Drew is his business assistant who is also dating Susan. William tells her that she should wait until lightning strikes. Me and Jurate noticed over the course of the film that Susan is sort of abnormally close to her dad. But then we decided that maybe they are so close because he is a widow and she has no mom so they only have each other. Oh, and Allison, but no one cares about her. There is a man talking on the phone very loudly.
And he is at the height of his hotness.
Meet Joe Black - Wikipedia
Here he is now verses then. They chat about stuff and the sparks are just flying all over the place. And they talk about stuff, all of which I have forgotten. Then Brad turns around in the middle of the street and gets hit by a car. And then gets hit again by another car. When I told Wanyu I watched this movie, he said that getting hit twice by cars was just too much.
Am I Going To Die? That is the question. Then its the family dinner night, so William, Allison, her husband, and Drew are all sitting at the dinner table. Basically William is getting time in exchange for showing this autistic spirit around. So they go back to the dinner table and William has to introduce Death.
Her father disapproves of the relationship and suggests she look for someone more suited to her character. The young man is struck and killed by a car a few minutes later. Death Brad Pitt appears to Bill in his home.
Bill finally realizes that the young man is the personification of death. But death wants a holiday from his taxing, eternal responsibility of taking the souls of the dead to the after life. He chooses William to be his guide strikes a deal with Bill: Temporarily doubting his own sanity, he finally agrees. He is introduced to William's family at a dinner at his house, when Susan arrives a few minutes late.
She immediately recognizes the young man she met earlier that day, but the young man as Death is unfamiliar with the practices of mortal men and does not remember their original meeting. He acts awkwardly around her and she is confused and upset by his sudden odd behavior, very unlike his actions earlier that day.
When the dinner guests ask Bill for the name of his "old friend", Bill hesitatingly introduces him as "Joe Black". The family is puzzled by the sudden appearance of an old friend of their father's that they have never met. Joe insists that Bill allow him to accompany him everyplace he goes, and Bill reluctantly agrees. Bill knows that these are his last days on earth, but despite his best efforts, he fails to keep events from rapidly spiraling out of control. A merger has been proposed to the Board of Bill's company, and Drew actively supports the transaction, but Bill as Chairman vetoes the proposal.
Drew is very antagonistic towards this sudden, new "old friend" of Bill's, and is disrespectful and rude towards him. Susan grows disaffected of her relationship with Drew, beginning to see him for who he really is, and is somewhat enamored of the diffident, seductive, mysterious Joe Black. They have sex and she tells Joe that she loves him.
