Highly recommended to everyone who often catches himself living through movie characters
3 January 2009 | by (The Divided States of Earth) – See all my reviews

OK, I gave it only 7/10, but that's excellent for a little film like this. If you are really looking for a hidden gem then this got to be the one.

It's basically about a 30-ish year old advertising executive named Barney Barnaby, who is a movie nut - his favorites are the gunslinging kind. To him they are his only escapism. But Barney is depressed and bored with his life and job, so he decides to hire a hit-man to put a hit on himself, with the intention to shoot the hit-man. He thinks that the movies prepared him adequately to have the upper hand in this dangerous game.

The hired assassin soon realizes that his target Barney is his own client and that he is in it for the adventure. Adventure is what he offers him when he asks Barney to take the hit-man's job. Barney, equally afraid as he is thrilled takes up on the offer and he turns into a whole new person, now that he feels like an action character from one of the movies. But he underestimated the dangers that come with the job. Soon his life turns into a nightmare and the line between reality and fiction becomes blurrier and blurrier.

There are a lot of references to the world of movies, making 'Finding Interest' come across very self-aware. It's a nice third wall-breaker that keeps you guessing until the end. Overall it's just an exciting, little, clever thriller about a character I very much cared about, since I could easily identify with him.
