"A Sensitive Passionate Man" is a brilliant portrayal of an alcoholic whose bottom is death
30 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As A child of alcoholics, and a recovering alcoholic myself, David's performance is riveting, and extremely difficult for me to watch. Although my father did not die of this hideous disease, many of the behaviors that Janssen portrays hit the bullseye . It is a gut- wrenching performance -- one of his best. Dickenson's portrayal as the anguished wife with two children to protect was right on. I call it a movie ahead of its time.

As an adjunct, it is heart-breaking that David was, himself, addicted to alcohol and unable to look deeper within himself to stop his addiction, which almost certainly contributed to his premature death.
