    Yes, it is as long as a six course dinner, but what a feast. The subject matter is interesting--the disasters that happen to children when they are loved too much, not enough, or when they can't compete with the complications of their parents' lives. The cinematography is superb. The actors outdo themselves. Liam Neeson and Adrien Brody are esteemed, but this is their best work.Yes, it is as long as a six course dinner, but what a feast.

Mila Kunis and James Franco prove more than cute, off beat personalities. The director, Paul Haggis, loves telling multiple stories that combine sometimes in terms of story, sometimes only through implication. If this is "playing God", let him play on--he has the cards.

    Even though with a strong and elegant cast for "Third person," the script is convoluted, and Haggis tries to focus on three scripts to make it into a film. Liam Neeson takes a break from the action movies and does a romance movie? in this movie he is a alcoholic selfish writer, who sucks at love, so he is in paris trying write his novel.

Olivia Wilde loves Nesson's character, but they don't know it yet. Adrien Brody tries to help Monika (Moran Atias), get her money back from the con's. Mila Kunis has a rough past, so she wants custody of her son from James Franco's character; so they get are getting divorce. The script gets way off, a lot. Grade B+ Expand

    Everything gets just too damn convoluted for its own good, and it’s hard to care what becomes of Haggis’ characters as they’re shifted around. Any one of the strands expanded alone might have worked better.

    If "Crash" set your teeth on edge, book in at the dentist's before seeing this one.

    It's also deeply flawed, an emotionally exhausting film with a payoff that is limited at best, and a bit self-indulgent to boot. So while Haggis has proven himself a first-rate filmmaker and storyteller, by his standards, Third Person is little more than a second-rate effort.
