Altough there are some interesting choices in film making, I rather prefer to see this piece only as a "Joaquin Phoenix solo performance art". He truly is amazing and besides him, there are not much things to mention about this movie.
Could have been a lot better. It's shameless struggle to become a blockbuster took away so much from this movie. Especially on the second half it becomes a shallow drama. Nonetheless it's an heartwarming true story with some good acting and fun dialogues.
