The Skrink

Kevin Spacey aways picks parts of intellectual men at their breaking point. The lack luster movie trailer did this film no justice, except to leave the viewer pleasantly surprised. Spacey is a shrink that starts smoking pot. Who helps the therapist who needs help? His dealer or his friends and colleagues? Working in Hollywood around blown up egos pushes people further from them their real self's. All this trying for personal growth surrounded by the glitz and glamor. A little bit of everything drug use, sex addicts, faded actress, and struggling writers. A great cameo with Robin Willams, very LA. The two main things are personal connections instead of psycho babble, and movies making as art.
