Seven Pounds (2008) dir. Gabriele Muccino

"I am reminded of a film you should see some day, Melville's 'Le Samourai,' about a man who lies on a bed in a dark hotel room and smokes, and gets up, and pays meticulous attention to his appearance, and goes out into the night, and we have no idea who this man is. I find this more interesting than a movie about a man whose nature and objectives are made clear in the first five minutes, in a plot that simply points him straight ahead." (Roger Ebert)

But is it boring? No.
