The Air I Breathe...

While shopping at Target yesterday I came across a movie I hadn't heard of called, "The Air I Breathe" starring an all star cast including: Kevin Bacon, Brendan Fraser, Andy Garcia, Sarah Michelle Gellar, & Forest Whitaker.
A drama based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love. A businessman bets his life on a horse race; a gangster sees the future; a pop star (Gellar) falls prey to a crime boss; a doctor must save the love of his life.
Instead of buying it, I rented it. The film reminded me of "Crash" without all the racial dialogue. One of those movies that is shown with time not being sequential and the pieces fall into place at the end.

It was hard to follow at first, but it was a good story by the end.
