Honestly, it's hard to see why "Jimmy P." was ever made.

It may not always treat psychology with the sophistication it deserves, but it at least acknowledges that it's an imperfect method of personal understanding.

Avoiding the usual therapy-drama story beats, Desplechin has made a densely satisfying drama about Freud, racism, and sympathy in its largest sense.

A fascinating cross-cultural experiment that eventually runs itself into the ground.

What grounds the film is the chemistry of the main performers.

In warming quite a lot to Jimmy P, it's possible that I've gravitated to what Desplechin's long-term admirers might regard as the wrong film.

The pain and sadness of Picard's life are perversely relegated to another time and place, one the film can only visit from the distance of his recollections. By the end, [Arnaud] Desplechin makes him known thoroughly, but not vividly.

The fine lead performances by Benicio del Toro and Mathieu Amalric are the highlights of the artfully crafted, fact-based drama Jimmy P., which tries (sometimes in vain) to make psychotherapy cinematically intriguing.

The sterile process that the film is fixated on is admirable, but Jimmy P. rarely gets at anything engrossing or interesting about its characters.

The movie offers the most psychologically complex screen portrait of a Native American character in at least twenty years, probably more.

Jimmy P. tells the more-or-less-true story of two men's friendship and one man's recovery. Beneath that, though, is a meditation on exile and lost identity in which very different people share remarkably similar circumstances.

It's mysteriously interesting, almost a Rorschach Test, with little details sprinkled throughout that we may or may not catch. It's open to your interpretation.

Because it is so unabashedly Freudian, the movie also seems old-fashioned and often just dull.

Benicio Del Toro's sad, penetrating eyes loom heavy in this intellectually intriguing but sadly dull biopic.

Brian Orndorf

Solid work from stars Benicio Del Toro and Mathieu Amalric lubricate the movie's hunt for understanding, but overlength tends to erase the effort's achievements in the end.

The film is nearly devoid of the sense of mystery and wonder that usually permeates Desplechin's work, and features only a meager handful of his signature expressionistic interludes.

'Tell a dream, lose a reader" is the Henry James advice that the makers of "Jimmy P: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian" should have heeded.

The French director overcomes melodramatic tendencies in the early part of the movie to settle into something more subtle and interesting -- the tÍte-ŗ-tÍte between two excellent actors fully inhabiting their roles.

Seems to struggle in making its interesting ideas apparent, leaving them stranded beneath the dry surface of an otherwise ordinary procedural.
