At the beginning of the New Yorker Video DVD, right before the main menu appears, a quote of Eddie Fleming fills the screen: "Just goes to show you how the mind works." At the very end, after the credits roll, a quote of Det. Steele fills the screen: "I don't know Mr. Fleming, how does the mind work?" But if you run the end credits a second time a different quote appears at the end, this time from Det. Prior: "It's about a fucking stolen fucking car you fucking fuckwit." See more »
A psychological chess match between a cop and a suspect
"The Interview" dedicates most of it's run time to a police interview (Aussie for interrogation) of a suspect in a stolen car case. The interview is supposed to be a process where questions are asked and answered in an attempt to discern the truth of a matter. In this film, however, one question leads to another and another and so on until the truth seems inextricably buried and the usually clear line between good and evil becomes blurred beyond recognition. An dark, claustrophobic, artfully presented all-business psychodrama out of Australia, "The Interview" will prove an enjoyable watch for those into mind game flicks. With good acting by all, special kudos to Weaving for an excellent performance.
