Stephen Dorff narrates this tale about how his life goes astray as his character attempts to strike a balance between the demands of directing his first film and the pressures of his new romance with a model. U2's Bono plays a role in this film as both himself and Dorff's character's concience. Written by
Lots of nice minimal jokes. Surreal amusing look at a young Hollywood director's search for the perfect partner. His life falls apart, in an affable way - he's likable. My scratched rental DVD jammed appropriately enough about half way, where there's a turning point. The picture blocked and jittered (almost a technique used in the movie) and ten minutes later the fun began, for me, with the introduction of the gorgeous Kelly Macdonald. If you've ever felt your work or love life's collapsing, and seen the irony of it, you might enjoy this film. It's a sweet story, nothing gruesome or sleazy. Music's minimal and appropriate. No sentimentality - not a trace. Just a nice bloke trying to find love.
