The first half of this film plays out so ideally that I expected it to be a favorite. It falters a lot more in the second half, but it's a totally satisfying movie overall. It draws its audience into a strangely orchestrated story and takes them into genuinely unexpected places. The characters are well-drawn and interesting, and Cassavetes' direction has a nice texture to it. However, this is an actor-driven movie, and these actors are up to the challenge of carrying it. Robin Wright Penn, John Travolta and especially Sean Penn are all brilliant here. Really stunning performances.

It's been said before but I'll say it again here..this movie likely suffers because the elder Cassavettes didn't have the chance to film it. Cassavettes had a knack for bringing out great humanity out of his actors. I don't think his son succeeds here.
