06.10.06Borrowed Too bad Kieth Gordon doesn't act anymore. For whatever reason, He stands out for me in whatever he's been in that I've seen. Oh well. So this is Mark Romanek's first movie, pre- all the music videos even. It's about a guy who invents something... huge, and his various friends. In a lot of ways it reminds me of Neal Stephenson's book The Big U, being that it's kind of a disowned first try of a work that has way more charm than the author gives it credit for. Yeah, it's not a perfect film, but I think it succeeds in its own way and has good turns by both Gordon and Bob Gunton as a veteran doomsday guy with a vietnamese wife and two sons named North and South. Amanda Plummer's also in it but I almost never like her so I'm trying not to hold her against the movie. I know Jim Jarmusch would be angry if i use the word "quirky" but it does seem to fit when it comes to this movie. good, small movie... I think I like it more than One Hour Photo.
