Interview

Self-destructive journalist Pierre Peders (Steve Buscemi who also directs) is no stranger to violence and inhumanity. Having made his name as a war reporter, he has traveled the world seeing some of the most horrifying sights imaginable. So he feels that his current puff-piece assignment, an interview with pop diva, TV and movie star Katya (Miller), is beneath his dignity. The two meet in a restaurant and, instantly, it’s a collision of two worlds — Pierre’s serious political focus and Katya’s superficial world of celebrity. But perhaps all is not as it appears.

This film is the 2nd in a trilogy of American remakes, based on recent films by provocative Dutch director Theo Van Gogh. The first was Blind Date directed by Stanley Tucci, and the last will be 06 to be directed by John Turturro.

Afforded a comparatively rare chance to stretch out in a complex lead role, Buscemi is excellent.

Stick with it for Miller’s gutsy tour de force and the kick of watching Buscemi, as actor and filmmaker, turn an experiment into a mesmerizing battle of wills.

Psychological duel between a journalist and an actress feels contrived and empty.

Some bits are too stagy, but for the most part this long night feels like an interview that could have actually happened. Miller is so good - dumb, smart, wounded, wounding, a lollipop of sweet poison that you'd buy every day until it killed you - that you feel you not only understand her but all actresses.

Stagey filming aside, this is a sharp and controlled study of celebrity obsession.
