The scene at 41:55 of the South Florida State Hospital as Chris sees it through a chain link fence is a cameo of sorts - the director is one of the "workers" walking past the building, "not because I wanted to, but because we had no one else and I needed someone in the background, walking, to liven up the shot."

Canvas was one of the most compelling films that I have ever seen. Young Devon Gearhardt was enthralling, focusing the audience as we watch him grow through a very difficult time. Joe Pantoliano and Marcia Gay Harden are equally transcendent, as this movie shines from start to finish. The cinematography and score stood out as especially interesting technical elements.
In this story of a family with a schizophrenic mother, all the actors perform beautifully. I hope everyone gets a chance to see this film, and I highly recommend it. It is a story of tragic brilliance while being both uplifting and informative. A must-see, for certain.
