DVD Review: Oscilloscope’s ‘Monogamy’ Marred By Unlikable Lead

Chicago – With so many unfaithful weiners crowding the daily news cycle, I suppose it’s as appropriate a time as any for a film like Dana Adam Shapiro’s “Monogamy.” As in the over-publicized Anthony Weiner case, the infidelity in Shapiro’s film never actually takes place. Instead of physical contact, the affair takes place entirely within the obsessive mind of a sexually frustrated voyeur.

Unfortunately, the voyeur is played by Chris Messina, a good actor who seems oddly incapable of garnering audience empathy. Every time his face shows up on the screen, I’m suddenly filled with the intense desire to punch it. Perhaps my reaction is simply due to the fact that Messina has delivered multiple memorable portrayals of oafish, self-absorbed masculinity. He played the allegedly lovable boyfriend in “Julie & Julia,” who devoured his wife’s carefully prepared dishes with all the etiquette of a slovenly swine.

Monogamy - DVD Review

Color me surprised at how much I liked this film.

At first glance you could see a movie about a photographer who takes clandestine pictures of clients who pay to be shot in the wild, an odd subset of humans who need to see what it’s like to be shown in their natural territory, as something Hitchcock would cook up when one of the clients takes it up a notch and gets a little freaky deekey, having a penchant for voyeurism.

Purposely antagonizing the guy, the sexualized client and photog share in a relationship that isn’t so much physical as it is cerebral. As, you see, the guy is getting married to Rashida Jones, a woman

'Weeds' Meital Dohan debuts 'Yummy Boyz' music video. Best not explained -- just watch

  • Pop2it
U.S. audiences may remember Israeli actress Meital Dohan (pronounced "Mey-tall") from her turn on Showtime's "Weeds," and sharing the screen with Rashida Jones in the critically acclaimed "Monogamy." Already the author of several books and plays, Meital is now trying her hand at the music scene.

Zap2it has your first look at her debut single, "Yummy Boyz." There's not much we can say about the video except that if you're anything like us, you'll watch it with your head cocked to the side and a puzzled expression on your face.

"Making the video was a bigger than life experience and even better than drugs," Meital says.

"Obama was great on the shoot. He came on time and he behaved properly," she adds with a sly grin. "I was really surprised and pleased that the President of the United States wanted to be in my video."

Chris Messina on Monogamy and Chewing Out David Chase
In Monogamy, Chris Messina plays Theo, a burnt out wedding photographer who starts a side job that involves photographing clients in a more natural, unaware surrounding. When one of his clients with the provocative handle "Subgirl" (Meital Dohan) shows up for her session and puts on quite a show, it leads Theo down a road of obsession that puts a strain on his current engagement to Nat (Rashida Jones). Movieline sat down with Messina to discuss the dark twists of Monogamy, an audition outburst that led to him being banned for life from the future work of The Sopranos' David Chase, and why it was unfair that Devil got caught up in the stink left over from M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender.

‘Monogamy’ Trailer and Poster – From ‘Murderball’ Director Dana Adam Shapiro, Starring Chris Messina and Rashida Jones

‘Monogamy’ Trailer and Poster – From ‘Murderball’ Director Dana Adam Shapiro, Starring Chris Messina and Rashida Jones
The narrative feature debut from Murderball co-director Dana Adam Shapiro, Monogamy was well received when it premiered at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival and even better received at the 2011 Independent Spirit Awards, where it's garnered a nod [1] for Best First Screenplay. The film follows a bored Brooklyn-based photographer (Chris Messina) who, amidst doubts about getting married to his fiancée (Rashida Jones), develops an unconventional side business where clients hire him to stalk them with his camera. It's described as [2] marrying "a mystery-thriller with a slice-of-life relationship drama to present a marvelously observed portrait of masculinity in crisis in the face of its own fantasies and fears of commitment". Check out the trailer after the break. I've been wondering when we'd see Chris Messina get a challenging lead role, and this looks like it may be it. The guy has great screen presence, and as affable as he is playing the 'nice

Monogamy Trailer: Chris Messina And His Lens Are Watching You

The film selection at the Tribeca Film Festival tends to be pretty hit-or-miss, but one of the movies from last year that I really enjoyed was Monogamy, the narrative feature debut from Murderball documentarian Dana Adam Shapiro, and starring Chris Messina in a role that really gets away from his cuddly good-guy parts in Six Feet Under and Julie & Julia. He stars as a Brooklyn-based photographer who becomes obsessed with a mysterious, exhibitionist blonde (Meital Dohan) after receiving a mysterious work assignment; all the while he's growing distant from his fiancee (Rashida Jones) and having doubts about this entire commitment to marriage. The film isn't perfect but definitely interesting, well-photographed and well-acted-- and if you're a resident of modern, wealthy Brooklyn, kind of interesting as a hometown effort. Oscilloscope picked up Monogamy at Tribeca last year and will release the film starting March 11. Check out the trailer below or in

Monogamy Trailer: A Darker Look at the Pressures of Commitment

  • BuzzSugar
Monogamy is not a romantic comedy. Given its title (and the fact that it stars Rashida Jones and Chris Messina), it sounds like the natural setup for something cute and light. But the film is not only dark, it's creepy. Messina stars as Theo, a wedding photographer planning for his nuptials to his fiancée Nat (Rashida Jones). Theo's life is pretty run-of-the-mill until he starts mixing up his photography work. Clients hire him to candidly capture their everyday routines (think of it as a personal paparazzo); but when he becomes infatuated with a particular customer (Meital Dohan), Theo spirals into a new sexual obsession. This isn't the first Hollywood drama to address cheating or temptation, but the story's voyeurism aspect adds a new spin on the all too common theme. Even though Theo isn't actively engaging in sex with his mysterious client, can his consuming desire for her be considered infidelity?
