Wow, I couldn't disagree more. Opinions are opinions, but I found the
movie very uplifting, in a _Gattaca_ kind of way --a story about an
intelligent and ambitious man who has to fight through his major handicap
(a distorted sense of reality) to succeed. Crowe is indeed a masterful
actor, and this is probably his best performance yet.

This is just an opinion, but for what it's worth, I highly recommend the film.
