I liked this film. It is basically watching an actor embody a character, and Philip Seymour Hoffman is, obviously, brilliant. There is a richness to this film that is subtle. It is the kind that needs to be savoured. When this comes out on DVD I want to watch it one evening with a few friends after a nice dinner and with glasses of wine and where we discuss the film while watching it.
