I bought this DVD on release day, and its been collecting dust on my shelf ever since. I didn't get round to watching it, even though I'd always been intrigued by the few clips I'd seen. The use of DV and the rough hand-held images gave the film a raw quality, a realism that only documentay films I'd seen had been able to capture. On a whim I pulled it out last night and I absolutely loved it. Its got an AMAZING cast, and they ALL deliver superb performances. Written/starring/directed by Alan Cummings (not as well known as he should be - Spy Kids, Eyes Wide Shut) and Jennifer Jason Leigh, it charts the goings-on at a Hollywood couple's 6th wedding anniversary party. Guests include life-long friends, business associates, current co-workers and the neighbours, who're only invited to provide an opportunity for ass-kissing to avoid a law-suit which is imminent over barking-dogs and early morning phone-calls. Co-stars include John C. Reilly, Jennifer Beals, Phoebe Cates, Kevin Kline, Gwyneth Paltrow, Parker Posey. Phoebe Cates and Jennifer Jason Leigh practically recreate their characters from Fast Times, giving the audience a glimpse of where they'd be 20 years down the line. They have an amazing scene together towards the end, which is easily the high-point of the film. It's really personal, and somewhat experimental, but at the same time it's very accessible, very, very entertaining, and surprisingly touching and funny. Great script great characters great actors great film. If you've been meaning to check it out, do so now.
