WHEN: 9:55pm EST, December 15th, 2012
WHERE: In my apartment in Portland, ME (Alderaan)
FORMAT: Blu-Ray on a Vizio 47″ LCD HDTV,
PHYSICAL AND MENTAL STATE: Tired. Worn out. Done with Cusack.
POST CUSACKATHON THOUGHTS:
It only goes down from here. After viewing the entirety of Cusack’s filmography (bit parts excepted), I can confirm that High Fidelity was the high point of his career. 1408 and 2012 were fun, but certainly not praiseworthy.
Is it the extensive naration that makes High Fidelity work? Does it mask his mediocre acting? God. I don’t know. Maybe the material just clicked. Maybe it was Frears.
My eyes stare at the screen, but nothing gets to my mind.
At least I only have to watch this two more times.
