I watched the 2004 film I Heart Huckabees last week for @etymancer,
who pledged in my studio's Kickstarter to raise money for a series of
art books! THANK YOU, @etymancer!! :D
Read on for some spoiler-filled reaction comics!
There were sooooo many excellent acting moments in this movie. Mark Wahlberg took the cake, though. Just remembering sad Marky Mark sitting on a rock with a rubber ball makes me burst out laughing.
Ohhh, and Jude Law!!! So great. He can make even this asshole character sympathetic. But I wish the film would have spent some time on why Brad was so obsessed with being cruel to Albert...
If you're going to make your audience that uncomfortable over a scene that long, it had better pay off later. This just did not. :-/ You know that maddening frustration when you're listening to a podcast, and people keep starting off on interesting tangents and being interrupted before they can get to their points...?
And yeah, that's not the case for everyone. The first friend I asked about the movie after finishing it said it was one he really liked. Just wasn't my cup of tea, I guess.
