What leaves you breathless, though, is the knockout acting by the cast.

The kind of brilliantly weirdo picture that, by all rights, shouldn't have gotten made at all but this time, miraculously, was.

PT Anderson's dark and stormy soap opera- or maybe it's just straight Opera-opera - with an ensemble cast of heartsick Master Thespians croaking to the cheap seats.(Cue Jon Lovitz: ACT-INGGG!!!) It gives Altmanesque a bad name and it's a unique mess...

Kind of a rip off of Short Cuts by Robert Altman. The acting is solid, but the premise is a bit silly. The frog scene is totally ridiculous... Entertaining but thats it...
