Kenneth Lonergan's latest film, starring Anna Paquin, the one that was held up in release due to artistic disagreements between Lonergan and the producer. It's actually easy to see why. The first half is often amazing and wonderful as you get caught up in the moral issues the central character faces. And the acting is often impressive. But in the second half, everything goes off the rails as Lonergan seems to completely lose control of what is going on and the whole thing stops going anywhere understandable. It's one of those fascinating failures, but a failure none the less.
