Synopsis: An epic mosaic of interrelated characters in search of love, forgiveness, and meaning in the San Fernando Valley.

The synopsis accurately describes the film, but does not at all convey the depth to which we delve into these many characters. Although we absolutely love Philip Seymour Hoffman in virtually everything he ever appeared in, this perfomance is especially touching and wonderful.

Additionally, seeing Tom Cruise as an asshole is always refreshing. And whatever you do, do not miss the ending, it's fantastic.

For many, this movie will be too long, too convoluted, too "artsy-fartsy" and just too much. It pushed even some of us over the edge. However, there are some performaces that should not be missed.
