I Heart Huckabees
How can I describe I Heart Huckabees? I could tell you that it's about an existential detective agency, but that's a little inaccurate, and, besides, it's more confusing than revealing. It's a film about connectedness and separateness and people trying to understand. That makes it sound serious. In a way, it is, but it's also ridiculous. It's a silly movie that will make you laugh. I Heart Huckabees was written and directed by David O. Russell, who also wrote and directed Three Kings. You can see some similarities in the directing style, but the subject matter in this one is much more off-the-wall. The acting was, across the board, excellent. I always enjoy Naomi Watts and Dustin Hoffman, and Jason Schwartzman and Lily Tomlin were also fun to watch. Surprisingly enough, Mark Wahlberg was also very good. In fact, I think this role was perfect for him. It's a weird movie. I loved it.
