This movie was not meant to 'wow' or 'entertain'. It's merely a telling of circumstances. It's raw and difficult to watch. Hoffman's portrayal was riveting. The editing was sorely lacking, and the film itself was at times disjointed. If you're looking for laughs, tears or loud explosions this is not the film to see. This film will not tell you what you're supposed to think or feel. That's left to the viewer. It wasn't an awul film, just not for everyone.
