Audience Reviews for Interview

  • Nov 18, 2012
    A former political reporter interviews a soap opera actress. 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.

    Sienna Miller is certainly trying hard to prove herself as a serious actress - and she's good in this. And Buscemi (also writing and directing) is his usual brilliant self. Sadly, the two characters are not interesting or likeable enough to hold the film for it's short 80 minute runtime.

    Insufferable, annoying, pathetic, contemptible characters hoard the screen with their whiny creepiness for an hour and twenty minutes, each trying to trump one another in a competition to see which is the lowest form of life. A "twist ending" almost saves this film, until you realize the lack of consistency it has with the rest of the film. The only saving grace this movie has is the fact that the near hour and a half you spend rolling your eyes, watching these lowlifes actually has some point in the end, albeit not much of one.

    Unless you're insanely bored [or on drugs], this isn't a movie you really need to see. I found this to be a very dull movie. The last 15 minutes are the most interesting. But if it weren't for Sienna Millers beauty and bipolar behavior [good acting on her part] to keep your interest, you wouldn't be able to sit through it.
