Overview

A hot young celebrity discovers fame can be a toxic substance in this independent drama. Gray Evans Giovanni Ribisi is a successful actor in his late twenties who would seem to have it made. Gray is married to an attractive actress with a solid career of her own, Mia Lang Franka Potente, he's got several projects in the works, he gets lots of fan mail, and he gets to hang out at ritzy parties with his heroes. But Gray is far from happy; his marriage to Mia is starting to fall apart, and he's being driven to distraction by his obsessive belief that a fan is stalking him. As Gray struggles to separate his delusions from reality, he finds himself indulging in a bit of stalking of his own, as he begins following John Joshua Jackson, a clerk at a video store who is a big fan of his movies. The way Gray sees it, John is happier than he is, John's pretty wife, Jane Marisa Coughlan, loves him while Mia doesn't care for him any more, and all in all he'd just as soon trade lives with the guy. In the midst of all this, Gray has recently run into Shana Christina Ricci, a former flame he'd like to reconnect with. Directed by actor Adam Goldberg, I Love Your Work features a number of major stars in cameo roles, including Vince Vaughn, Jason Lee, and Elvis Costello.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Adam Goldberg has artsy pretensions to spare in I Love Your Work, his solipsistic consideration of celebrity, obsession, and the desire to live in another's shoes -- even if those shoes are more scuffed than the ones you're wearing. To focus only on the anxiety of famous actors stalked by fans would be navel gazing, but indeed, the hipster actor and sophomore writer-director seems like he's starting out that way. In the starring role, Giovanni Ribisi personifies every terminally hip actor who shrinks away from making eye contact, who sees every random interaction as the public's attempt to bask in his reflected glow. But I Love Your Work is no simple portrait of unidirectional hero worship. Goldberg is interested in the pre-fame/post-fame dichotomy, and in genuinely questioning which grass is greener. Relatively new to fame, Ribisi's Gray Evans is grappling with the adjustment of no longer taking pleasure in being recognized. But he's also fondly remembering a "normal girl" Christina Ricci he once loved -- a girl who predicted he'd leave her when he became famous, in fact. His futile grasp for what he once had is as much this film's focus as his paranoid defense of his current life, and Goldberg constructs the action so it's unclear how much of what's happening is actually real. Unfortunately, this is also where I Love Your Work frustrates and intentionally confounds our expectations for clear narrative resolution. In his second directing effort after 1998's Scotch and Milk -- which also featured Goldberg pals Ribisi and Nicky Katt, and also meditated on lost love -- Goldberg seems a little too impressed with his own New Wave stylings and blurring of character identities. I Love Your Work goes off the rails enough times that it must be considered an interesting failure, but there's no doubt that it's interesting.

    Why watch painful annoying things? Art.

    This movie is to film and celebrity what watching a colonoscopy is to medicine. We all want good medicine, but some things are best left unwatched. Somewhat quirky and interesting at first, this movie turns into a redundant and confused two-by-four in the back of the head, an unflinching look at one sad hollywood story of a twitchy drunk with a serious inferiority complex complicated by delusions of non-grandeur in full melt-down. Giovani Ribisi is not at his "Boiler Room" best as this annoying self-loather who can get into all the best bars but can't get in with his wife or over his old girlfriend, who he hated for being between him and fame anyway, which now makes him so touchy. By the end I was so glad to see it end, at least I felt better about my life. For a better look at the celebrity/movie industry madness thing try "Swimming with Sharks" and "The Player". At least they did not forget to entertain the viewer by trying to be conceptual art first. This movie is a disturbed over-reaching conceptual masturbatory bummer. If you use the word "film" a lot instead of "movie", maybe you'll like it.
