Great movie! i just watched it in my Alcohol Therapy class and it was definitely touching. It was very much like 'Leaving Las Vegas' as where it clearly gives the message that alcoholism ruins lives. James Woods displays absolutely remarkable acting! a truly unforgettable performance. I subtracted one star because the film tends to lag and becomes repetitive in some areas, but i guess the repetitiveness was necessary to get the message across. 4-stars.
