(Sony Pictures Classics)
Starring: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Michelle Williams
In this artsy drama, a theater director (Hoffman) struggles with his work – and the women in his life – as he attempts to create a life-size replica of New York inside a warehouse as part of his new play. This is definitely not you typical flick. As the characters struggle to find themselves, they exhibit more and more bizarre behavior. The witty language creates comic relief during awkward moments, but this film falls short of being a good dark comedy.
