hey, I thought I'd post a little heads-up regarding your review of igby goes down.

it seems to me that although obviously you have some kind of grasp of the plot, I'm wondering if you really saw the movie. seriously. most of your review is just whining about how the rich are different from normal people and about how you couldn't see into igby's soul. maybe that's because you were in the bathroom half the movie?

d.h. (goldblum) plays igby's godfather, not his step-father. his mother never remarries. this is made abundantly clear by the constant references to "my godfather", "my brother's godfather" and the references to bunny, d.h.'s wife, who is clearly not igby's mother.

now, I'm not posting this because I loved this movie so much I can't stand for you to blast it in a review, but honestly thom, did you even watch this movie?

really. just want to know.

I'm surprised you or anyone even read it.

I had to write something, I was pressed for time, I didn't take notes. In short, I behaved like an amateur Internet film critic.

I did however interview Amanda Peet who is less than interesting and a little upset that we didn't get all starstruck when she walked in the room.

Whereas Piper Perabo was a little more down to earth and interviewing her was like hanging out in Drama class.

And I did have to face down with Marco Weber, the producer, about my review. I saw him at the All The Queen's Men junket and he said, "hey, you didn't like Igby."

No, I guess I didn't, but its not like I loathed it, I just wanted more out of it and I didn't get it. And I thought it was too much trying to play off of the success of American Beauty and be a sneaky version of Catcher In The Rye so I didn't see it as having its own identity. That is really my main complaint. I didn't once sympathize with Igby. Not once.

It didn't crystallize for me. I wanted it to be more absolute, either more bleak, or more focused around some perspective. I wanted it to be more Hamlet-esque but its difficult to show internal monologue with actions. Igby was like the trash can for everyone else and he was kind of a Mersault-like existential anti-hero. He just passively accepted what was going on around him and never responded. It needed a sharper edge.

I loved the scene where Susan Sarandon gets the bag over her head though.

CNN reported that she marched in the Washington DC Peace Rally on Octover 26th.

You won't be saying that if you see Slap Her, She's French. That chick has a big wide mouth, like a cod.
