Poetic and melancholy - I'm enjoying seeing your deck of tropes reshuffled.
Emotional. Ever seen 'Defending your life'? With Albert Brooks and Meryl Streep. I think you'd like it..similiar thing. Souls choosing their path beforehand, seeing your life played out. Actually, you should just watch it. It's good. So is this. Not what I should be reading when I'm already in an existential crisis, but it's very good.
