Based on popular cartoonist John Callahan’s memoir (Joaquin Phoenix), the movie takes on a hysteric ride with some meaningful insight. Callahan became a heavy drinker at the age of 12 and, after a car accident, a quadriplegic at 21. Despite all the obstacle, he went on to become a popular cartoonist who managed to find humour in the subject like disability, making thousands laugh. Director Gus Van Sant in his own way adds wit and add some light moments in this offbeat tale.
