Hal Hartley's best. Trust me.,
This review is from: Trust [DVD]  (DVD)
So I've given the film five stars. You'd expect a glowing review. And you'd be right. But only because in the world of Hal Hartley, if you're to see one film, then choose this one. Hartley can have a habit of repeating itself. The first four films are undoubtly the best and since 'Amateur' you might be forgiven for feeling you've seen it all before. The themes may change but the language of his films doesn't. So trust me. Before you become immune to the Hartley way of seeing things and his coversations restrict rather than liberate, then watch this one; compact, amusing, thoughtful, sharp, deadpan and with a Martin Dovavan whose grumpiness only makes you love him more.
Oh, and for Adrianne Shelley, who sadly is no longer with us.
