Good Film

A good drama film for drama lovers.

A minor travesty

The book of short stories upon which this 'film' is based is excellent. Each story paints a small picture, distinct from all the others, creates 3 dimensional characters, and is in short, an excellent read. The movie, however, mangles and combines the stories such that the characters, the stories, and everything except the putative star of the film, Los Angeles, becomes colorless porridge. The film bounces nervously from vignette to vignette, attempting to tie the lives of the characters of all the stories together. It is nearly unwatchable.
