With work driving me batshit crazy, I don’t have much going on to write about. Last night, however, I worked in a couple of hours for a Netflix movie.
I Heart Huckabees was recommended to me by more than three friends, which usually means it’s a film right up my alley. None of them, however, would tell me what it was about. In fact, I had never even heard of this movie before it was suggested. (One of the downsides to living life without watching television is that you don’t know what movies are out. I’m sure some of my friends hate the fact that I always have to ask, “What’s that one about?” when they suggest going to a movie.)
Having now seen the movie, I can tell you what it’s about.
It’s a comedy about two detectives (Lily Tomlin and Dustin Hoffman) helping two men (Albert Markovski and Marky Mark) resolve their existential problems. That’s really all I can tell you about it, because existentialism is something that can not be described. I’ll just say that it was funny, more so because I think it mocks movies that take existentialism seriously. And I’m all about mocking things.
I won’t buy this movie, but I’d watch it again, so I’m giving it four stars on a five-star scale.
