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
This was one of those movies that I caught by accident while flipping through the channels on a lazy Saturday afternoon, and I must say that it was a plesant surprise. Being a single college guy (for now, anyway), I can appreciate both the situations and the humor in this movie. The attractive characteristic of this film is that it does well portraying the lifestyle that any male 25-35 would like to have: Hottie for a girlfriend, making movies, and traveling with the greatest band ever. (Sweet loft apartment, by the way) Dorf does a good job playing an everyday character in a not-so-everyday career with a gorgeous girlfriend. (where did she come from? woo hoo!) Though a little quirky at times, this was a fun and entertaining movie made in that High Fidelity-like male perspective on relationships, full of narratives and quoteable lines
"Relationships like Russian Roulette, or the lottery, depending on how you look at it. Either way, you can't win. "
It captures that swept off your feet feeling that we can all identify with and what it's like to juggle attention between love and life and work and how unbelievably powerful the attraction to a person can be. Good directing, decent editing, better plot, laughed my butt off (get rid of the stupid cat scene). Great film!
