jamesfrancotv James,

I just saw The Interview. You are brilliant in it--but the film itself is also brilliant. I've seen now many reviews; but none I've seen captures how remarkable, genuinely great, you and the film are.

Your performance perfectly crystallizes a figure that runs through much comedy--someone who is a fool and not a fool, utterly self-absorbed yet weirdly objective and canny and generous at bottom. One loves him, partly because his narcissism is one's own but somehow isn't poisonous. He risks everything for what he believes in, which one hopes would be true of oneself but is glad hasn't been tested. He wears awful clothes which he is very proud of. He makes up aphorisms which he immediately assumes the world will adopt, but which only a self-pitying villain initially recognizes as true. He alone goes through the great transition that the film asks us to imagine possible--from taking on a project partly out of horniness, to feeling the person to be assassinated is the opposite of how he was portrayed, then to seeing that this reversal of feeling was itself an example of the honeydicking, honeypotting that is a subtext of the whole film. Wow. You do all this yet keep his weird ebullience, a lightness that is part of his charm and makes him even lovable.
I've now seen the movie twice (in the middle of writing the above paragraph I stopped and watched it again). It's very funny but at bottom wildly serious. It's ambitious, finely made, in the same league as Dr. Strangelove but utterly different. It's about friendship, love underlying friendship. Somehow the price of the journey the film makes, of seeing all this, is two of Seth Rogen's fingers. Some flesh has to be mutilated in the bodies of our two heroes, and it turns out to be two of Rogen's fingers. Somehow it feels right that Skylark floats through, and ends onstage happy with his new book.

Rogen is perfect, even deep. As you are deep.

How bold to end a Hollywood movie with the words, ". . .shits his pants. The end." The film repays the wild attention that North Korea's rage has given it. A masterpiece.
