A funny and joyful film, Funny all the way through
17 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Troubled Interviewee" the premise An incompetent new filmmaker wants to try his hand as an interviewer, with half an idea he sets out to find a willing subject. From the start you know it will be a humorous film, as the new filmmaker starts his project he pans the camera from his car to show how unpopulated the area is and as he points it out the back window you get more of his back seat and he comments, "Well, my back seat is not populated anyway." There are many deadpan deliveries that Anthony pulls off very well.

He approaches a girl and with clumsy and inept questions he stumbles along but actually gets her to agree to let him into her house, after she starts talking you see why. As the interview progressed I was grinning the entire time. I didn't know which was more funny, the girl, who was artfully played by Rebecca Lynne, which could have been a case file for a psychiatrist, or Anthony as the interviewer who sees he has gotten in way over his head. They follow no script which is fantastic imagination on both actor's parts. Plus, with no script, you will be surprised at what comes next as it does not follow a boring Hollywood template.
