too many unpleasant characters in these stories...I turned it off and put away the book when I started feeling like I was being compelled to hang around people I didn't really like. I'm sure it's all high quality work, but "Why?"

'Short Cuts' DVD-2004 is a two CD set. Only Disc#2 was enclosed.As the retainer spindle(?)for Disc#1 was broken, I suspect it got lost at some point prior to me borrowing it.

This film has a very impressive cast. It was made almost 20 years ago so you see current Hollywood stars in their earlier years. There is nudity in some scenes that seems senseless and the film goes off the rails at some points, but overall this movie is watchable, but a bit of a snoozer.
