A beautiful film about the torments of being an artist
16 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

A movie about what it is like to be a writer, about the process involved, the long hours and days you have no idea if you're actually going to finish whatever it is that you write, or the total lack of inspiration that can go on for years. This process is seldom shown in movies, as it is totally unattractive, and of very twisted entertainment value. The long hours of drinking, sleeping late, staring into ones self and looking into the eyes of their inner demons. And most of all a movie about the fact that writing is a calling, along with everything that comes with it.

Jeremy Irons is a very versatile and sensitive actor, which can deliver a believable and dramatic interpretation, playing the widest range of characters, and at the same time remain his charismatic self, even when he plays a less likable character, as it is the case here, Sissy Spacek is always top notch and Neve Campbell proves to be more than a teen movie idol.
