Synopsis: After falling out with his editor, a fading political journalist (Buscemi) is forced to interview America's most popular soap actress (Miller).
Starring: Jackson Loo, Molly Griffith, Robert Hines, Sienna Miller, Steve Buscemi, Tara Elders
Directed by: Steve Buscemi
Largely a two-hander, Interview features strong performances by the two leads, writer/director Steve Buscemi and Sienna Miller. The chemistry between the two actors is strong, and Miller, especially, is able to find nuances in the banal.
The script's pace seems off. It's hard to hold a film audience's interest with only two characters and a single set, and when the camera should be moving, it isn't and vice versa. Buscemi isn't a great director, but he gives himself and Miller plenty of freedom, which saves the film from becoming too trivial and claustrophobic.
Overall, this film is decent and worth seeing if only for the leading actors.
Worth a rental, good call for fans of indie film.
I'd have been really pissed off though if I'd had to pay to watch it.
but in the end, it's a twist!
