O que falta de estilo ao filme é compensado por uma atuação corajosa, despojada e impressionante de Naomi Watts.

There's no question that what makes "Ellie Parker" work is the continued presence of Naomi Watts, a great film actress whether her film's budget is $187,000 or $187 million.

Ellie isn't a particularly likable character, but thanks to Watts she's an imminently watchable one. In many ways this is a daring, unforgiving performance.

This is the movie they should show in college acting classes, instead of tapes of Inside the Actors' Studio.

[Watts'] performance carries this film.

Watts is alternately annoying, sympathetic and hilarious in the title role. She's always entertaining.

Watts, whose memorable audition scene in Mulholland Drive launched her into stardom, makes a glorious mess of herself playing her karmic opposite.

Though Ellie Parker isn't an especially deep film, and Watts' character can come off a bit whiny and narcissistic (but hey, come on, she's an actress!), it is engaging and frequently funny.

While Coffey occasionally grasps for material to build a feature-length work, it is a truthful, funny testimony to the everyday masquerade of Los Angeles' pose of bohemian cool.

Ellie's story is as old as Hollywood, but Coffey brings to it a fresh, frenzied and often painfully raw vision in which Ellie begins to feel that her personality is as fragmented as life in Los Angeles can be.

Naomi Watts delivers a fearless, largely unsympathetic portrayal of the title character as a desperate, unstrung version of herself (an Australian actress with a knack for dialects).

You don't have to have any actors in your life to get how killingly smart and accurate Ellie Parker is in its depiction of 24/7 navel-gazing, Hollywood-style.
