Pulp novelist Eric lives in a bad neighborhood, and the guy upstairs annoys him with his noise. Gradually this escalates to pranksters phone calls and wire tapping which ticks off Eric's already unstable, nervous and paranoid personality.
This is a quirky little movie, and I have to agree that there is some quirky acting in it as well.
It follows the adventures of a young man who decides that he wants to become a famous Las Vegas illusionist, and is partly about following his dream, partly about the dreams of others, and all about the travails of showbiz. I thought the movie was charming, and it has a moment or two of real magic that make the whole thing worthwhile.
Alan Arkin is terrific as the magician who never was, and his mentoring of Max makes for a funny and touching relationship.
Not for everyone, probably, but if you like movies about the journey, then I think you'll like this one.
