Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

The Shape of Things (2003)

Directed by Neil LaBute

Starring Paul Rudd, Rachel Weisz, Gretchen Mol, Frederick Weller


The dialogue is very scripted. If you close your eyes, it sounds like a run-through of the script itself. And that really prevents us from believing the characters are genuine. It becomes very obvious that we’re watching a movie.

The premise is interesting, but it might have been more effective if it had drawn us in at the beginning.
