I'll just say that I remember seeing the film when it came out and left not knowing what the film was about. Too arty for my small brain, I guess.

FWIW...a few of us pontificate about it here:

The opinions of this poster are subjective. That’s how opinions work.

It was hard to disagree, but I still thought his performance was the best he ever gave. That kind of pain is extremely difficult to convey on screen. Ever see DeNiro try to cry in a film? Forget about it...

I can't help but wonder how much of that was acting and how much of it was inside of him. We'll never know of course and I could be way off base.

There's no difference between acting and "what's inside" of a person. How else could an actor play a character other than with what they have in them?

Well of course, what I was talking about was when an actor portrays someone like that with ease. Is it skill or is he just living his life in front of a camera? I don't know the answer in this instance.
