I ♥ Huckabees (I heart Huckabees) - Jason Schwartzman, Isabelle Huppert, Dustin Hoffman, David O Russell

Threat advisory: Elevated - Significant risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

An existential comedy.

Albert Markovski (Jason Schwartzman), head of the Open Spaces Coalition, has been experiencing an alarming series of coincidences, the meaning of which escape him. With the help of two Existential Detectives, Bernard and Vivian Jaffe (Dustin Hoffman and Lily Tomlin), Albert examines his life and his conflict with Brad Stand (Jude Law), an executive climbing the corporate ladder at Huckabees, a popular chain of retail stores. When Brad also hires the detectives, they dig deep into his seemingly perfect life and his relationship with his spokesmodel girlfriend, the voice of Huckabees, Dawn Campbell (Naomi Watts). Albert pairs up with rebel fire-fighter Tommy Corn (Mark Wahlberg) to take matters into his own hands under the guidance of the Jaffe's nemesis, the French radical Caterine Vauban (Isabelle Huppert).

Theatrical report

I ♥ Huckabees is a fun film in the sense of the Absurdist movement but really, Douglas Adams did most of this already with Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. Dirk is more interested in telekinesis, quantum mechanics and lunch than fiddling around with fingerprint powder and gets to the point (at least to a point) through his understanding of the fundamental connectedness of things.

And there's a great bit about a horse.

That said, I ♥ Huckabees is a great way for those who attend the cinema (rather than those who go to the movies) to have a hit of mindless entertainment because the best way to watch it is to switch your mind off and drift with the currents.
