'Interview' is an Actor's Showcase Movie

Maui Time | July 18, 2007
Director/actor Steve Buscemi plays Pierre Peders, a narcissistic journalist on a downward spiral assigned to interview Katya (Sienna Miller) a notoriously vapid and slutty celebrity starlet. Pierre hasn't done any research on his subject, who shows up predictably late for their meeting at a chic Soho restaurant. He's insulting and she's lame, but the two opposites attract enough for them to go back to her nearby loft for some mutual flagellation. Talky, stagy and burdened with a video tape plot device that will make you cringe, Interview is an actor's showcase movie that could, and should, have been made by a couple of talented student actors trying to break out of their off-off Broadway gigs.

Rated R, 83 mins. (C)
