The Wrap : Writer-director Tim Blake Nelson‘s “Anesthesia” is one of those ensemble dramas in which the relationships between a group of people are only made clear gradually as the film goes on. This sort of movie generally tries to tell us that we are all connected, and we are all in this together, but Nelson avoids sentimentality entirely, much to his credit.
A veteran character actor, Nelson has the sort of face that seems to expect the very worst, and he writes his scripts and makes his films accordingly.
