Steve Buscemi's Trees Lounge is one of my favourite movies: a charming free-wheeling low-key romance between an ice-cream salesman and a pubescent girl. This remake of a Dutch film by Theo van Gogh suffers from a lack of chemistry between Buscemi and Sienna Miller and an overworked script that puts plot before plausibility. It's a shame because it's never less than wàtchable and occasionally very good.

The critics be damned, this is a great piece of work by Steve Buscemi and Sienna Miller is wonderful.

Excellent acting, minimalist production (efficient, hence profitable). Confusing ending for some viewers?

Awful. Boring and trying hard to be important as if some Tennessee Williams lost masterpiece. Goes no where and says nothing.

easily watchable and amusingly interesting, an I ending to ruins it.

Much better than I believed it would be in the beginning. Worth a watch. Love Steve Buscemi.

Quiet little film where Buscemi gets to shine. Sadly, Sienna's character sounds like a man wrote her and the film drags in places as it feels like a stage play. The ending also leaves you a bit hanging, but I think that's the point. Overall, interesting little film.

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.

This Buscemi- directed film has a certain film stage-play quality to it, and while the sparring kind of feels like it goes in circles at times, it's still a very watchable little film. The reporter who thinks he's better than the tabloid fodder story he's been assigned spends an evening verbally sparring with his subject in an effort to reveal something of substance even as she tries to dig into his life for reasons of her own.

Worth a rental, good call for fans of indie film.

As long as you are fine watching Steve Buscemi and Sienna Miller bicker back and forth for an hour and 24 minutes your just fine. The ending however is sudden and the twist has no real impact.

Meh. Not very convincing, but interesting, I guess.

J'aime bien. Simple et bien.

This was a very weird, interesting, disjointing little 90 minute two person movie.

The real gem of this film is discovering Sienna Miller. Beautiful and smart she handles her role her with a lot of sass and depth. My main problem with the film itself is that that conversation doesnt feel real... it feels written. Handled well by Miller and Buscehi but still ultimately with a canned vibe. The cat and mouse game is fun, but it's difficult to follow since you never know what is real or bullshit. Nice ending. I will definately be interested to see where Miller's career goes. Was it me or was she trying to look exactly like Jessica Simpson?

A really wonderful exhibition of acting. It's a stage play more than a film, but it's great.

Totally engrossing, intense. Thanks for the recommendation, ma!
