High Fidelity Reviews

Steven Rea

High Fidelity, with its knowing take on men, messed-up romance and music, is like one long, hook-filled pop song for the eyes.

A film pragmatic enough to concede that almost every relationship is doomed, but romantic enough to realize that it's worth it to carry on in spite of that fact, High Fidelity is one of the smartest and funniest romantic comedies of the past few years.

When happiness does arrive in this movie, it has the air not of something that you reach, like your top speed, but of something that you give in to, like baldness or old age.

As for Mr. Cusack, there's nothing potential about his stardom any more. He's the self-doubting, self-flagellating, self-ironic soul of "High Fidelity," and he's great.

Cusack makes High Fidelity seem less self-indulgent than it is: It's impossible to imagine the movie without him.

Cusack is a master at playing smart, frazzled, self-flagellating hipsters, and the movie, propelled by his arias of angst, lets him strut his best stuff.

There are a lot of wonderful supporting roles here, but the actor who'll get the most mileage is Jack Black in a career-setting turn as an obnoxious slacker.

Cusack works especially well with the unknowns in the cast, while Frears creates an ensemble that complements Cusack's more flamboyant moments.

With his passive presence and nervous eyes, Louiso is quietly hilarious. And Black, whose character is both arrogant and bombastic, is even funnier.

The British hero of Nick Hornby's novel, on which this movie is based, certainly does not scream out 'John Cusack.' And yet once you see him, you can't think of anyone who'd do it better.
