As Good As It Gets
29 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Carter faces his addiction and his purposely forgotten crippled cousin, while Weaver confronts her sexual orientation and growing affection for Dr. Legaspi. Félix Enríquez Alcalá directs this well-written collaborative script with visual flair. He clearly gets the best out of his actors in every scene and uses Amanda Ghost's "Silver Lining" with effective editing to end this poignant episode.

Besides the strong lines, the actors show their craft and their comprehension of their characters by using a lot of non-verbal and drawing us into the situations and into their heads. The intensity of their inner turmoils surpass the typical ER traumas. From the opening sequence with classic Romano & Benton banter to the last shot, these 44 minutes are pure delight.
