I Heart Huckabees

Great film, great end of bank holiday show for RTE. 
Kind of funny when you think about it, the Holy weekend that was in it, all about Jesus and whatnot, to be concluded by a funny and thoroughly existential movie such as I Heart Huckabees. No harm at all. The winning quality is in the little details in this movie, everything from the cutesy soundtrack to the imagination/dream animations, down to Wahlberg's brashness and Tomlin and Hoffman's idiosycracies. Jude Law is also excellent, a pretty different type of role for him. And as for the subject matter, right up my alley . . . one of my favourite movies of all time.
This gag reel is pretty good - check out Dustin Hoffman letting one rip. It belies a stranger working environment as witnessed in this video of director David O Russell going crazy at Lily Tomlin. Nasty.
