It's a movie based on an idea, and all the conventional wisdom agrees that emotions, not ideas, are the best to make movies from. But Being There pulls off its long shot and is one of the most confoundingly provocative movies of the year.
A delightfully dark comedy that, despite a cynical bent, offers viewers a good time.
