"Everything you say can and will be used against you "After falling out with his editor, a fading political journalist (Buscemi) is forced to interview America's most popular soap actress (Miller).
A fun little movie
The premise here is that Steve Buscemi is a washed-up political
reporter who is assigned to interview a tabloid-fodder actress known
for her direct-to-video horror movie sequels (played by Sienna Miller).
Neither one of them wants to do the interview but they wind up spending
the entire evening together and (maybe) revealing a bit of the real
person behind their defenses. The whole thing is a little contrived --
it's the sort of piece where both characters spend the first half
complaining about how much they dislike the other, but neither one is
willing to leave or ask the other to -- but the snappy patter and
excellent performances sucked me in and I happily went along for the
ride. Of course Buscemi is great, but Miller was surprisingly good as
well, digging into the part of a sex symbol who isn't taken seriously
with a lot of enthusiasm and self-confidence.
