Ultimately, this two-hander feels limited in scale, but frisky and diverting while it's on.

As an exercise in preconception-shattering, it works reasonably well. But as the characters veer between petulance and intimacy and back again - often within the same verbal exchange - the situation never really rings true.

Stagey filming aside, this is a sharp and controlled study of celebrity obsession.

Pretty far from being a great movie, but it's not without its pleasures -- mostly due to the performers.

Interview isn't essential viewing, but it has a message for the media and its audience worth absorbing.

Media foes face off in intense indie adult drama.

Works better in concept than execution.

Carla Meyer

With her performance in Interview, Sienna Miller does more for today's tabloid-fixture starlets than they'll ever do for themselves.
| Original Score: 3/4

Rainer Werner Fassbinder might have been able to make us care for these characters; Buscemi and Miller are only able to get us to concede their chops.

There is precious damn little about watching a reporter and an actress trying to outsmart each other that could possibly be described as "compelling."

Austin Chronicle
September 7, 2007
Emotional honesty in the service of nonsense is still nonsense, no matter how many scabs it manages to pick at.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
September 7, 2007
A one-act play in search of a black box theater and an audience unfamiliar with such intense cat-and-mouse character studies as 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

There is something perversely appealing about this film. Maybe it's the way Interview astutely comments on celebrities and our perceptions of them, as well as questioning the sincerity and truthfulness of the media.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)
September 6, 2007
There's just one hysterical scene after another, ideal for an acting class but off-putting over the course of even a relatively short film like this one.

Remaking a 2003 original by the slain Dutch director Theo van Gogh, Buscemi has produced a charmingly perplexing portrait that's anything but a knockoff.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
August 23, 2007
Interview, a mood swing of a film with a trap-door resolution, is never much more than an elliptical exercise in symbiotic insincerity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
Phil Villarreal
Arizona Daily Star
August 23, 2007
A battle of who couldn't care less in which two parties' disinterest collides into a spark-filled festival of mutual loathing, attempted manipulation and resentment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
Brian Webster

Interview is smart, provocative and disturbing, a searing indictment of media, hypocrisy and the themes Theo Van Gogh explored in his original.
| Original Score: 79/100

Buscemi and Miller should be roundly praised for the acting chops they display in this thriller.
