On July 13, the new Sienna Miller movie Interview premieres (limited release). Written and directed by Steve Buscemi (who also costars) the flick tells the tale of a "fading political journalist who is forced to interview America’s most popular soap actress."
At first I thought, "Great! I like Buscemi (even in that pervy film Trees Lounge) and I’m interested in anything that explores the cult of celebrity and what passes for journalism these days." But then I read a plot summary that included this paragraph:
"Each [character] is scarred in their own way, aching from deep, hidden pain. But honest revelations give way to punishing deceptions. Their confrontation evolves into a passionate verbal chess game spiked with wit, intrigue and sexual tension, capped with a riveting twist ending."
Now I’m just thinking, "Great, another average-dude-gets-the-hot-girl flick." How many of these must we endure? Wouldn’t it be more interesting if someone like Susan Sarandon played the interviewer? That would be a hit at the box office too, don’t you think?
