I thought Depp did a great job, same with Turtorro. Great character actors. Depp just breaths life into anything that is thrown at him. I loved some of the shots as well, like the 'one take' shot as we start 6 months later going from the lake to through the window down the stairs through a mirror to Depp. Awesome shot. A couple others like that as well. The story was pretty predictable though. I'm reminded of Adaptation where they say multiple personalities is the biggest cop out in writing and they are right. It has been done to death lately and better IMO. But I did enjoy watching Depp 'work'. The movie was a throwaway though.
