Fluxblog on I ♥ Huckabees

Fluxblog: The 19 Forbidden Notes Of The Boite Diabolique: "Naomi Watts is especially great, which suggests that she has been wasting too much time screaming and crying in shameless Oscar bait when she ought to be doing more comedy"

Absolutely correct. She's really rather fine in this kind of role.

it's a rather lovely film, by the way. I couldn't agree with my cinemate as to whether it's a critique (me) or affirmation (him) of therapy and self-actualisation culture. But whatever, it's got a sex scene involving a muddy puddle, Jude Law suckling a grown man and Shania Twain, not to mention a soundtrack by Jon Brion. We like.
