Don’t Worry…
 approaches the cliff of sentiment without going over the edge. Based on the memoir by Portland cartoonist John Callahan, the film traces what happens when this party-hard boozehound is rendered a wheelchair-bound quadriplegic by an alcohol-fueled car accident.

His journey from despair to becoming a successful satirical cartoonist makes the usual stops at physical therapy sessions, but Joaquin Phoenix and director Gus Van Sant raise the bar when they use roguish humor and bruising pain to color outside the box. Under the guidance of Donnie (Jonah Hill), his Zen-like sponsor at Alcoholics Anonymous, our antihero finds a way. Hill’s portrayal is a marvel of nuanced acting.

 The artist finds recovery torture at first, marinating in self-pity. Still, it’s Callahan’s discovery of cartooning as an outlet for his rage and cutting wit that gives the film its resonant power. Van Sant lets those ’toon panels dance into the action—and it’s that kinetic playfulness that rescues the film from formula uplift.
