His idea of preparation for death is simply telling his daughters he loves them and not allowing his company to be bought out so he can leave a legacy behind. The idea that if you are a good person you will be rewarded in your afterlife is given a platform in Bill Parrish. He is by no means a religious or spiritual man. He appears to love his daughters and try to be fair in his company. Dying is accurately portrayed as the end of this life and the beginning of something else.
The director and sound editor made some poor choices in post-production. Severely limiting background music throughout many of the dialogue-only scenes made the audience suffer through bad performances and poorly written dialogue without the comfort of music to distract them.
Rather than cutting away excess to show a powerful scene raw, the lack of music slowed the pace of the movie. It is not suitable for children as the PG rating implies.
The movie concept peaked my cuiosity enough to check out the movie. I had researched it enough to be prepared for a slow-moving movie. I found the whole subject interesting and liked the actors enough to enjoy the movie. The comedic scenes with death adjusting to life were enjoyable.
I would have liked to know the characters better.
It was frustrating to have such shallow characters up on screen for this long. This was the biggest complaint about the movie from friends.
It was very good to see positive human traits spot-lighted in a movie and upheld. It was said several times what a good person with great qualities Anthony Hopkins character had. It also high-lighted a good marriage by his oldest daughter and talked about what they did to make it good.
I would not recommend parents to allow their young teens to see this because of the love scene. It is slow-moving and you watch their faces through the whole sex act. Janet, age 39 I thought this movie was tremendously slow. But, as he later is able to learn, this contradicts love, because love recquires that you know the darkest secrets of the other person. We see Asbolus in all this.
In the end, Bill triumphs, as he is able to teach Joe about the meaning of love, which is truth, commitment, responsibility, and above all, not hurting the person you love.
Bill is ready to go; his life is fulfilled, he has had everything he wanted, especially, the overflowing love of his two daughters. Joe surrenders and leaves Susan behind, taking only Bill. Before leaving, once-cold and implacable Death has tears in his eyes.
Bill is aware of Joe's sadness and says: Yes, it is, says Joe-Death. I guess some of you may find this corny. It is when seen out of the context of the film. But I thought the dialog and the plot could help us see how the centaurs manifest in the feelings of people.

The loving father, for example, is the Sun, as well as the luminous heroic figure that Joe represents for Susan. This allegory is, to me, a wonderful expression of the Mystery of Christ the God that became human and suffered death in order to transcend it through the birth of love, which was the fruit of His death.
It is also the story of Parsifal, the compassion-less fool Joe Black who is able to heal and redeem the wound only after he learns to feel the pain of others, etc. The source of the data I use is as follows: November 2, time: I use 24h GMT as reference.
Let me make a few comments first about working with the actors' data to represent the movie, since it is important to clear out the questions of methodology here: Normally, artistic scenes --in painting, in movies, in literature-- are superior to actual circumstances in terms of meaning.
I believe this is true also of dreams. I can say that movies and particular scenes seen from the point of view of the director's and the actor's chart are very fertile and valid for this kind of research.
Certain scenes in particular are actually the culmination of a main theme throughout the movie, and the key of many of the dialogs between the two characters.

Besides, in a grand-scale movie like this, it is just not one scene: Any actor involved in a film is first very carefully chosen so that he or she fits the character. As the movie goes on, the director and script-writers normally adjust things to the personality of the actor, while the actor must create the character out of his or her own personality and life experiences.
It is the same with any artistic creation, and I believe that in most cases they are better expressions of inner and psychological forces --as shown in the astrological chart-- than actual circumstances of life.
I deal with this daily with my clients. Fantasy projections and scenes are no different from real-life experiences. I see no difference between using a painting, a work of literature, or a movie character or scene to understand the forces at work in the personality of the artist or artists involved. The Fight for Susan. As I already mentioned in the summary of the movie, Death Joe Black falls in love with Bill's daughter, Susan, who has also fallen madly in love with him.
Meet Joe Black
But Joe plans to take her away with him, even though he hasn't told her who he is. Joe's world or true nature is trans-Neptunian and trans-plutonian, but as he has incarnated in Joe, he had become centaurean. From the notes on the night of the Premiere, you can see that he is best represented by Pylenor as a person, and by Asbolus as a principle.
Bill has gone from a feeling of alarm and fear at first to external manifestations of anger and disgust toward Joe, and shouts at him to leave his daughter alone.
Seeing her father's anger, Joe politely but commandingly reminds him of who he is: Bill replies, in an unusual openly harsh tone that appears for the first time between the two at this point:
