Ridiculous and a waste of time.

Shallow, longwinded entry with an oddball assortment of characters, including wannabe film makers; survivors of a loved one's suicide; a depressed, drug-dependent psychiatrist; & his various patients & associates. Altogether way too long, drawn out, bleak, & self-indulgent.

Good - Shrink (2009) 104 min. Though rated as a good film, it's downfall is the fact that it had an incredible story which the writers just did not fully explore to the level they should've. The concept includes a psychiatrist (Kevin Spacey) who loses his wife after she commits suicide. He didn't read the signs and couldn't save her despite writing a book on "happiness". How painful that must be. And Kevin Spacey demonstrates that pain through drug use and depression. Unfortunately, the story misses that big punch especially after including another character (a teenage girl played by Keke Palmer) who lost her mother via suicide - there should've been more, much more, from their talks together.
