Prot says he his from the binary star system of Agape and Satori. These are certainly poetic appellations by the writers; "Agape" is the Greco-Christian term for transcendent unconditional love, whereas "satori" is a Japanese Buddhist term for enlightenment, or self-understanding. Of the few hundred or so stars with proper given titles (as opposed to a star-catalog number), none have those names. See more »

After the credits, there's a view of the stars and then Dr. Mark Powell looks through the lens of his telescope as if he is looking for the stars of K-PAX. He walks in his yard, and the movie ends. See more »
I can't believe I had never heard of this movie before I came across it. I mean, how have I not heard about a movie starring masterclass actors like Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges? The dialogue between these two characters was written extremely well. It's not often you can have a movie where there's this much sitting and talking between two charachters and not get bored. With this movie it's the exact opposite, you actually get sucked into the conversations because of how interesting they are. Probably my favorite aspect of this movie is the mystery that surrounds this whole dilemma. It keeps your mind active the entire time wondering whether Prot is in fact an alien, or just a man who's disillusioned. At different times they'll give clues to have you leaning one way or the other, but they'll never let you completely make up your mind. Overall, the talented acting and the skillfully crafted writing are what make this movie so enthralling to watch. This is one of those movies that definitely deserves more noteriety than it's gotten.
