Though the movie seemed to lack something, Phillip Seymour Hoffman's magical performance will keep you glued to the set. I have always been a big fan of Hoffman's, but this movie shows the talent and skill this man holds as he becomes his character Wilson; a man who becomes a gasoline sniffing addict after his wife commits suicide. Throughout the movie, he holds the unopened letter his wife wrote him before her death, as he goes through life sniffing gasoline and picking up the hobby of flying remote controlled airplanes. Though it sounds odd, Hoffman holds you through the whole movie as the severely depressed Wilson, so much so that you just want to reach through your set and rescue him.
