I Heart Huckabees

I Heart Huckabees

Premodern Help for Postmodern Times

Is Mark Wahlberg the real existential detective?

By Matt Kirby ::: philms ::: ::: Read the whole thing



After reading, Matt Kirby’s insightful interpretation, I went back and saw Huckabee’s a second time.  Like Eternal Sunshine, the second time was better than the first.  What I liked most (besides Hoffman’s and Tomlin’s fabulous tonge-in cheek performances) was the marrying of modern French Philosophy (Isabelle H) and older French Philosophy (Hoffman and Tomlin).  And, finally, a performance that Mark Wahlberg sank his teeth into!

Nicely written.  Somehow both an easy read and a mental exercise at once.  Mozart would be proud.

Lets hope there are more like Smitty.
