Love Liza

Relapsing into despair after finding the suicide note of his recently deceased wife, a young man (Philip Seymour Hoffman) takes to huffing gas fumes, and then to a radio controlled airplane hobby in order to console his consuming grief (I think that's all the plot description I can bear to muster). "Love Liza" is an incredibly bad and misguided film, featuring a putrid performance from Hoffman, which consists of a lot of yelling and blubbering, all from a poorly conceived screenplay written by his brother Gordy and directed guilelessly by Todd Louiso.
