I recently saw this excellent movie, starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey, Jr. Highly recommended for anyone interested in schizophrenia, music, homelessness, and getting through to the core person. Great insignt into mental disease and how we treat it now socially and culturally. Very thoughtful, sad, wonderful music!

I saw it opening day because my friend was supposed to be an extra in it (his scene got cut) :(

Anyway, I thought it was too meandering. The story never really went anywhere and the editing was no good at all. If they’d cut a good half hour out it might have been better.

The acting was great though.
