Under the Radar

It is a smart, funny, endearing, and entertaining glimpse into a part of Hollywood rarely depicted in film.

Despite solid performances, the cast can't inject much sympathy into these characters or their self-indulgent plight.

Seems forced into much darker territory in its final act. Gregg provides a prologue to foreshadow it, but it still doesn't quite fit.

Trust Me is a great offering from Clark Gregg that really puts the man's skill - in writing, directing, and performing - on proud display.

There's a fine tradition of acerbic movies that skewer Hollywood: Think "Sunset Boulevard," "The Player" and "What Just Happened," to name a few. The dark-humored "Trust Me" is a worthy addition to the list.

A grim portrait of an agent for young actors who takes his best shot at success in the nasty and venal Hollywood film community.

Really can't compete on any level, being insipid and mean-spirited.

There's certainly humor running through writer-director-star Clark Gregg's "Trust Me," the tale of an inept agent for child actors; it's just that not all of it feels intentional.

As long as Gregg, as both actor and director, is anatomizing the Hollywood viper pit, Trust Me rings true.

Its perky poster notwithstanding, "Trust Me" is a putatively hard-edged comedy that promises to turn into something harder.

As the movie picks up speed and undergoes sudden, confusing plot reversals, it loses its satirical edge.

"Trust Me" contains so much terrific writing, acting and observation that it becomes a bit easier to forgive writer-director-star Clark Gregg when his ambitions best him during the movie's convoluted last third.

A smart, sardonic, unpredictable morality play that gets the little things right.

A surprisingly tough little movie about the reality of child actors in Hollywood.

...the final third of Trust Me winds up being so misguided, compared to the overly familiar first hour, that the entire affair just feels noxious.

As Trust Me gets twistier and more serious, it also veers toward pity for its central character (which reads as self-pity for the filmmaker, fairly or not).

Dramatically, Trust Me goes from stability to seppuku. It's the kind of picture that could be shut off at the hour mark and nothing would be missed.

This is Clark Gregg's film and he brings the right blend of salesmanship, anger and flop-sweat desperation to the role.

If Trust Me is any indicator, Gregg is a talented budget director of surprisingly downbeat, tonally staid, wholly effective tragedies.
