I really liked this movie and can't believe it has had such mediocre reviews. This was a very ambitious film, and despite the sci-fi/fantasy element it was a very humanizing film, too. Loved the music, too especially all the Junip/Jose Gonzalez they used - was great to hear "Far Away" twice (when Walter drives through Greenland in search of Sean and the missing photo and then when Walter rides down Icelandic mountain on the long board he traded Stretch Armstrong for) and also "Don't Let It Pass" (when Walter and Sean have joined the Sherpa soccer match)
Also a side note, this was one of the first films I liked Kristen Wiig in. She didn't just play her one nervous stock character.
