Movie Preview: Krasinski's Brief Interviews With Hideous Men


John Krasinski picked a pretty juicy project for his directorial debut: David Foster Wallace's Brief Interviews With Hideous Men. The film has made the festival circuit and garnered mostly so-so reviews. In fact, I read some pretty negative reviews a while ago and got it into my mind that this wouldn't be an appealing movie. But now that there's a trailer, it doesn't look too bad at all.

Krasinski also stars in the movie which follows Sara Quinn (Julianne Nicholson), a doctoral candidate in anthropology whose sudden breakup with her boyfriend motivates her to interview a variety of men in an attempt to better understand their secret thoughts and desires.

Maybe I think it looks OK simply because I expected so little of this film, but I'll probably see it. What do you think? To take a look at the trailer,

I saw it at Sundance too and really really really wanted to like it, but it fell flat. Julianne Nicholson did the best that she could with the material, but somehow it did not translate well on screen. kafarine-tin-tin, there is very very little krasinski, so you might want to wait until dvd.

the book is amazing--disturbing, but amazing. i always thought it would make a good movie, but heard dfw was very protective of the rights to his work. i'm curious to see how it translates.

I'd see it if only for John Krasinski.

Saw it at Sundance. It was ok - not worth a full price movie ticket though. Wait until DVD. It was interesting if only to see John play a different kind of role.
