Sundance Review: Interview
by Alex Billington
January 23, 2007
Steve Buscemi's latest writer and directorial feature - Interview - is a very personal drama that is set primarily in the loft of the dainty superstar actress Katya (Sienna Miller). Buscemi is journalist Pierre Peters who primarily focuses on politics but is sent to interview the "currently hot" actress Katya by his editor. It soon becomes an angry back-and-forth interview between these two, who maintain a very interesting chemistry throughout the film.
I really have nothing bad to say about Interview - it's generally a very well made film, another great feat for Buscemi as a filmmaker in addition to an actor. I just think to myself - what I'd give to go hang out for a couple of hours with the most attractive celebrity in her loft. The two seem awfully intimate for people who've never met and greatly dislike each other, but this is Katya's personality. It's an interesting film that I can't see going far in a wide release but will have many interested viewers in limited art houses or on DVD - and is a great film worth taking the time to fulfill your interests.
