I Love Your Work

on November 04, 2005 by Susan Green
Is Gray Evans losing his mind or is it all in his mind? That's a key question at the heart of "I Love Your Work." This satire of Hollywood, co-written and directed by Adam Goldberg (an actor in "Saving Private Ryan," among other films), appraises the decadent excess available to celebrities. Gray (Giovanni Ribisi) and his wife Mia (Franka Potente) are successful actors on a fast-track to unhappiness. He becomes increasingly paranoid, ricocheting between visions of a creepy stalker (Jason Lee) and fond memories of his old girlfriend Shan (Christina Ricci).

When Gray begins spying on a presumably normal couple (Joshua Jackson and Marisa Coughlan), the movie goes over the top. Perhaps that's the point. Who knows? Who cares? The best moments belong to Jared Harris as an Israeli security expert who should have been allowed a lot more screen time. A cameo by rocker Elvis Costello, as himself, is also one of the highlights in an otherwise shaky plot. Starring Giovanni Ribisi, Franka Potente, Christina Ricci, Jared Harris, Jason Lee, Joshua Jackson, Marisa Coughlan, Vince Vaughn and Elvis Costello. Directed by Adam Goldberg. Written by Adam Goldberg and Adrian Butchart. Produced by Chris Hanley, David Hillary, Joshua Newman, Tim Peternel and Adam Goldberg. A Thinkfilm release. Drama/Satire. Rated R for language, sexuality, some drug content and violent images. Running time: 110 min
