Albert Markovski: [Blurry shot of tree]
[Albert's thoughts are voiced aloud to us, but not the audience on camera]
Albert Markovski: Mother-fucking, cocksucker, mother-fucking, shit-fucker, what am I doing?

"Heart" For the Brain
18 November 2004 | by EmperorNortonIISee all my reviews

Not a lot of movies tackle the subject of philosophy. The latest to join that few is "I Heart Huckabees." It's a surreal story about an environmental activist who employs the services of an "existential detective" agency. This story may go over the heads of some viewers, with its deep conversations and strange imagery. There are a lot of interesting characters, like Jason Schwartzman's activist Albert; Dustin Hoffman and Lily Tomlin as the unconventional sleuths; Mark Wahlberg as Tommy, a fireman with an anti-petroleum obsession; Jude Law as Brad, the Huckabee's corporate stuffed shirt, and Naomi Watts as Dawn, the neurotic spokesmodel. Does this movie answer questions, or create them? See it for yourself. It'll really make you think!
