Interview (2007)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Dec 11, 2007; DVD Release Date: Dec 11, 2007; Movie Rated: R; Genre: Drama; With: Steve Buscemi and Sienna Miller; Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics

Though the premise suggests otherwise — Buscemi's political reporter deigns to write a profile on Miller's young starlet — Interview isn't so much a critique of celebrity culture as a peek into the baffling clockwork that is human behavior. Both leads are riveting as they wile away the night, insulting, seducing, and deceiving each other — not to mention us. EXTRAS In his commentary track, Buscemi, who also co-wrote and directed this remake of a 2003 Dutch film by the late Theo van Gogh, admits he's a ''whore for laughs.'' And yes, the movie has a few.
