Everyone Loves Faye but Me
28 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I understand that this was filmed and set in the 70s in New York and I think it's meant to mirror some of the avant garde style of that time and locale, but I couldn't stand Faye's acting style in this film. Her character is supposed to be a strong, successful, visionary/controversial photographer. She seemed to start many scenes playing just that, but would then quickly fall to pieces and appear to not know where she was, what she was doing, or how to answer a simple question. This happens over and over. I felt like I was watching over- acting from the 40s.

The rest of the cast saved it for me. Especially Brad Dourif and Tommy Lee Jones.

I liked the general story and premise, but even at only 104 minutes, it felt drawn-out.

A lot of people seem to think the ending was predictable. It caught me pleasantly by surprise!

I doubt as many people will be as put off as I was by Faye's acting in this particular film, so I would recommend this with my own reservations. I love supernatural movies and whodunits, and this was an interesting combination of both. It is definitely dated, though. Good luck.
