  1. Aivaras_Z's rating of the film Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

    Not that bad. An okay adaptation, although could have been executed better.

  2. Áine Mullan's rating of the film Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

    Krasinski chose very ambitious source material for his directorial debut and unfortunately, like most of Foster Wallace's work it's hard imagine it ever translating well onto the screen. If you loved the book you'll find this hard to get through, if didn't read the book you probably won't want to after watching this.

  3. Aimee's rating of the film Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

    there were some brilliant moments in this film, marked by great performances and touches of magical realism. krasinski chose great parts from the source to adapt onscreen but i think he still needs to find his way as a director. overall this is not a bad debut. the dialogue definitely sounds overly scripted.

  4. Robby Justiss's rating of the film Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

    John Krasinski's directorial debut is one of the best i've ever seen.

  5. meerkate's rating of the film Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

    Come on Krasinski, this could have been so much better.

  6. Westley's rating of the film Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

    Read the book by David Foster Wallace instead. This film is a decent adaptation, but the book is definitely superior.

  7. Louise_Dietrich's rating of the film Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

    It had some interesting ideas. Not great by any means, but definitely some things to think about.

  8. Litza's rating of the film Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

    I don't really know what to say... I expected something else, i didn't get the point of the film, felt confused and in the end really frustrated because i expected something bigger, in conclusion it didn’t deliver for me...
