Even though Halle Berrys performance here is occasionally overwroughtas if she is just begging to have another Oscar thrown at herBenicio Del Toro is total greatness as a heroin addict trying to deal with the death of his best friend. When a doting father (David Duchovny) is killed, his wife (Berry) asks his best friend to move into a spare room at her house. The premise sounds hokey, but director Susanne Bier keeps things feeling realistic and plausible. The films getting some criticism for its shaky cam, but its not bad at all. Del Toro really gets a chance to show his stuff here, and hes more than up to the challenge. Duchovny makes the most out of a few minutes in the film, as does Alison Lohman as a fellow addict trying to help Del Toros character. The films not good enough to be a serious Oscar contender in the Best Picture category, but its good enough to see if you like powerhouse actingDel Toro brings it.
