This US remake of a film by Dutch provocateur Theo Van Gogh, killed by an Islamic extremist in 2004, has director-star Buscemi as a political journo who reckons his latest ‘people profile’ assignment on a ‘bimbo’ actress is pretty much beneath his contempt. In the course of an evening however, the lady herself proves rather more complex than his assumptions. Appropriately-cast Miller matches Buscemi all the way in the drink-fuelled verbal and physical confrontation which ensues, and if the excellent performances can’t disguise the material’s sometimes forced emotional switchbacks, the movie never tells you what to think about either of these damaged, calculating individuals. Ultimately a two-hander limited in scale, but frisky and diverting with it.

I cannot understand how someone can endorse such vomitous drivel. I am a fan of Steve Buscemi and even could tolerate the concept of this film but the acting and moreover the dialogue is so woeful that for only the second time in my life did I consider walking out of a film (saved only by the thankfully short run-time)! For a movie based on a dailogue you would have thought they would have put a little more thought into it, or listened to how it sounds. Sure Buscemi does a good cringe-worthy male pretending to resist a bimbo young girl, but given he directed it and decided to make the film you wonder if its not just how he was in real life anyway. And besides - who cares! Trying to pay testament to Theo Van Gogh's life and movies is one thing but I'm not sure remaking a crap film of his really dpes the best job.. Run people, run for the hills!!
