Another Film Review
Your Friends and Neighbors ***1/2 - *****
Interesting that the past two movies I've seen are about infidelity considering I picked them for two different reasons (Little Children to scope out Jackie Earle Hayley and Your Friends and Neighbors to see another Neil Labute Film). LaBute is known for writing about the dark side of human nature, I think hes adept at making characters that will completely disgust you but you'll find yourself relating to anyway. There were some pacing problems and it was hard for me to buy Ben Stiller in a serious role but there were some chilling moments in here (specifically the ending) that made the experience worthwhile. Recommended.
