 Failure Magazine-Archives-Arts & Entertainment-It's a Wonderful Life
At its core, "It's a Wonderful Life" is a parable of a good, honest man who, after years of struggling to do the right thing, questions his life and the choices he's made.
While "It's a Wonderful Life" is often referred to as a sentimental movie, the issues it presents—questioning what makes a man a failure or a success—are hardly lighthearted.
Basinger notes, "'Wonderful Life' did not have the huge success that some of his earlier movies did, but he knew that for him it was an important movie at an important time in his life." Little did he know the impact the film would have many years later.

 Capra: It's a Wonderful Life
It's a Wonderful Life is a film of endless frustrations, deferrals of gratification, and of the complete impossibility of representing the most passionate impulses and imaginations of the self in the world–and yet the title is still entirely unironic.
The whole of It's a Wonderful Life–and indeed most of Capra's work–might be said to exist simply to make possible and to legitimate this movement into the interior: In place of worldly movements, adventurous events, and public speeches, Capra substitutes possibilities of imaginative movement, adventures of consciousness, and silent revelations.
George is inextricably embedded in the group, never to be released from its pressures or even able to want to turn his back on it, but with this imaginative movement he has also forevermore been propelled outside of it, at an infinite distance from it, reflecting on it.

 Sparklehorse: It's a Wonderful Life (2001): Reviews
Essentially, 'It's A Wonderful Life', is an equally brilliant and perhaps more cohesive album, mixing an arcane guitar, string and keyboard based atmospheric tilt, with more fast-action, barrelling moments.
Ironically, the consistency of It's A Wonderful Life's dreamy, narcotic tone tends to detract from the consistency of its quality, in large part because the first few tracks set the bar so high.
Musing, eerie and oddly lovely, It's a Wonderful Life is almost minimalist - it captures fleeting moments in a few chords and peculiarly evocative phrases.

 Wonderful Life (Stephen Jay Gould) - book review
Wonderful Life is a description of one of the biggest fossil finds ever — a collection of invertebrate remains dating from the early Cambrian (550 million years ago) dug out of the Burgess Shale in British Columbia.
The fossils in question are all invertebrates, mostly under an inch long, but they have weird and wonderful shapes and are quite enthralling.
Wonderful Life will be compulsory reading for anyone interested in man's place in the universe, the sociology of science or the evolution of life.

 Amazon.com: Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History: Books: Stephen Jay Gould   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Wonderful Life was published in 1989, and there has been an explosion of scientific interest in the pre-Cambrian and Cambrian periods, with radical new ideas fighting for dominance.
This 1989 book "Wonderful Life" is still widely quoted and his theory repeated, i.e.: his theory that the number of "body plans" or what the scientists call "disparity" was more diverse at an earlier time which contradicts the idea of increased diversity with evolution.
Alternately, see: Andrew Knoll's "Life on a Young Planet." Most think that Gould had abandoned the "punctuated equilibrium" theory by the time of his death in 2002, and in any case it was largely dismissed by his peers.
