He was a Quiet man

He was a Quiet man.

Christian Slater, Elisha Cuthbert, William H. Macy. Word. I like weird movies, and the cover has a lot of potential.

I have always liked Christian Slater. Heathers, Pump up the Volume, Gleaming the Cube, Kuffs, he's like a more serious and more attractive Norm MacDonald. Elisha Cuthbert doesn't have to take chances at this point. She can just be safe, play knockouts and make a ton of money. But she plays quirky, fun roles. We all know what we're getting with William H.

The movie takes place mostly in the mind of the severely deranged Bob Maconel(Slater). For most of the movie, you can't tell if it's really happening or not. Innovative camera angles, good writing, good acting, and originality make this movie at least worth seeing. There are elements that will remind you of 'Office Space', and parts like nothing you've ever seen.

If you've got some time, check it out.

Never heard of this, yet it has actors I like. Thanks for the reco. this site is quickly becoming a great filter for me to your unsatiable appetite for movie-watching, regardless of public opinions about the film.

Might I suggest a WWMT column? (What Would Margo Think)

here's the problem :

She doesn't have time to watch all these movies, or write as much as I do.

I already spend a lot of time imitating her so writing as her might not go over all that well.
