A mid 00s charming and fun indie films, but certainly not compromising on philosophical depth. I usually have a tough time with such crafted films that experiment with conventional realism, but this film pulled it off nicely. The philosophical topics in the film are explored well, roughly stated comparing the 'everything is connected' buddhist metaphysics to the 'nihilist' perspective, both of which have their role.
Our Daily Free Stream: David O. russell - I Heart Huckabees. Ich habe I Heart Huckabees gesehen und nichts geschah - zwischen dem Film und mir gabs keinerlei Annäherungen. Warum erschienen mir sämtliche Charaktere in David O. Russells Film so wenig greifbar?(...) mehr auf cinegeek.de
trite and forced. it's like someone tried to make a funny david lynch movie. WHY? i would default to russell's 'spanking the monkey' or the very funny 'flirting with disaster'. ugh, a cheap version of eternal sunshine. you know what this reminds me of? the episode of the simpsons in which homer tries to find his soulmate (which again, was much better than this movie).
