This movie definitely shows how talented an actor Robin Williams is and can be when he wants it bad enough. Unfortunately the plot is a bit choppy and the ending seems to be unresolved. What happens? Very entertaining from a cinematic P.O.V. I feel that I've just scratched the surface of it by watching it once. Parts of it resemble Death of a Salesman but it has it's own unique take on life.
