But, it kind of needs like an intermission halfway through. He has to deal with a lot of junk, one thing after another, and it can be stressful to even watch at points. Great movie though.
I thought this movie was really kind of boring...good acting, yes, but considering the subject matter, I feel like I should have been really happy for the guy by the end, when in fact that wasn't the case at all, I really just didn't care.
I have to agree with you here. It didn't end well. I would have rather them take out some depressing scenes, and add some to the end, seeing what he ended up acheiving after all of his struggles.
Agreed. I was hoping for some post-suckiness happy times scenes.
