Amazing depiction of a life unraveling as a man tries to play superhero
12 April 2003 | by shoyt_2001See all my reviews

Then beginning and end of this movie depict what everyone who has not lived through this, expected to be the outcome. The fact that a man could carry this three way deception for so long makes the story interesting. No movie minutes are wasted in the telling of this tale and getting across many messages in as few scenes as possible. The doctor has many needs and much to give. He can give much because he has his needs met in so many ways by so many people. He feeds them and they feed him. But the balance is always precarious and keeping it all balanced it what brings down the house that is not a house of cards but a house of emotions and needs that cannot be sustained over a long period of time. As time takes it's toll the need for further deceptions and lies are needed to keep the original lies flowing. Addiction is the root but it is a good intenstioned addiction that fuels this man and his wives. Rollercoaster rides only last a few minutes for a reason. No one can live with the adrenalin flowing constantly and eventually the other side will come in to offset the high. The movie depicted the long term ride that the doctor took and gave it the adhesive necessary to make one see how it could happen. And it showed the downside effects that were experienced by all of the players who were not running the show. They all got part of what they wanted and contributed to something but in the end no one was satisfied. The human heart may want to fulfill it's needs by attending to the needs of many and be fed by the love of many but in the end the deception led to the early demise of the one who loved too much and left big holes to fill for those who were left behind to deal with the debris.
