Goofs

After Grey (Giovani Ribisi) and Mia (Franka Potente) have a fight in front of a reporter and photographer from a tabloid, The National Probe, Mia lifts her shirt revealing her breasts. The film clearly shows Mia standing in front of the photographer and lifting her shirt, and the camera not being used. When Grey sees the front page of the edition later, the split second of Mia's nudity is on the front cover. How is that possible? Also on the front page is the tag-line for The National Probe, More Exclusive Stories Than Any Other Tabliod! They misspelled the word Tabloid. Maybe for people that stop the film to read the cover of the magazine or to look at the picture and figure out how it got there. See more »

Muddled and misanthropic
6 September 2003 | by mcnallySee all my reviews

I saw this film at the 2003 Toronto International Film Festival.

Giovanni Ribisi is a movie star living what I hope is a caricature of a movie star's life (although in Hollywood, there seems to be no such thing as a caricature). He's becoming paranoid, seeing stalkers everywhere and suspecting his movie-star wife of infidelity (with Elvis Costello, no less). Then he meets a fan who seems so normal, and proceeds to screw up this man's life, all the while descending into some sort of madness, and flashing back to a time in his life when he seemed to have normalcy and real love. This film is a bit of a mess, actually. Lots of flashbacks and movie stars portraying movie stars portraying movie stars. It got a bit too "meta" at times, and the narrative was muddled. There was also an ambiguity about the whole fame thing, which is not very new, and frankly, hard for an audience to sympathize with.

I love movies and hate the movie business. So, apparently, does Adam Goldberg. So how come I didn't like this more?

(7/10)

P.S. Before the screening, I saw Giovanni Ribisi walking down the lineup filming the crowd with his camcorder. In addition to Ribisi and director Adam Goldberg, Franka Potente, Christina Ricci, and Shalom Harlow were also at the screening. Of course, after seeing the caustic way in which fans (and stars) are portrayed in the film, it would be just about impossible to say anything to any of them, even if you could get close.
