Interview

Rated R 86 minutes 2007

Writer, actor, and director Steve Buscemi fulfills a cherished project of Theo Van Gogh, the Dutch filmmaker assassinated by an Islamic extremist in 2004, with this English-language remake of Van Gogh's hastily done two-hander Interview (2003), written by Van Gogh's friend Theodor Holman. Van Gogh was a deliberately unpleasant provocateur, and his hand is evident in this playlike encounter between a political reporter (Buscemi) and the shlock TV actress he's assigned to interview (Sienna Miller). But the good direction and performances seem wasted on limited material; despite a few interesting twists and ambiguities, the main revelation -- that the reporter is an insufferable snob -- doesn't seem worth the 84 minutes devoted to spelling it out.
