Quotes

Carl: I think Lee is like... Have you ever seen a dog get hit by a car but walk away? And there's this impact and you know something terrible has happened to that dog but it walks away and it doesn't seem to even realize the implications cause it just goes on. But you know that something terrible has happened inside this dog. That's, I think, what happened to Lee. It's like she's a dog that got hit by a car, and she walked away and she's still walking, but some very, very important things inside her ...

Experiment gone awry
19 February 2004 | by (Mississippi, United States) – See all my reviews

This is an exercise from Steven Soderberg and that's all it is. You sit through an hour and a half of conversations that normally entitle "you know" at the beginning and end of every sentence to try and make the "film" more real. It juxtaposes two "films"..one containing Francesca(Julia Roberts) and Calvin(Blair Underwood)(this filmed in 35 mm)as Catherine and Nicholas talking about a black actor's status in "white hollywood".This leads to Calvin being opposite Brad Pitt(playing himself)in a film directed by David Fincher. This film,come to find out is in turn a doc directed by a man who's face is covered by a block(it's Soderberg). The "real film" (which is lensed in digital)contains Calvin and Francesca as well as other characters and their lives in Los Angeles. The film's ending totally popped my already deflating balloon and showed that my time and patience was wasted. The dialogue meanders trying to show real people talking about real things. I thought it was a hollywood insiders film cared only by those who are hollywood insiders. I thought the characters never had direction and were simply annoying. There were moments it looked like the film might go somewhere,but unfortunately it gets bogged down with that "phony film" keeps coming into the middle of the "real" movie. I just sat there trying not to collapse in my desire to turn the dvd off. Oh well,I'm done with this review,but if you watch this wasteland of wasted time beware..I warned you. BOMB/*****
