Movie star Gray Evans (Giovanni Ribisi) is at the top of his game: a seemingly endless supply of money, celebrity friends (Vince Vaughn), parties, a beautiful wife (Franka Potente) and his name and image, known all around the world.
But with fame and fortune comes attention, and not always the kind that is wanted. Convinced that the chance encounters that he has been having with his fans are not really coincidental, he looks to his bodyguard (Jared Harris) and a video store clerk (Joshua Jackson) for help despite the protests of those around him. Is he truly paranoid, as they suggest? Or are they motivated by jealousy and spite? Has he found himself in the crosshairs of an obsessed fan or is it someone much closer to him? Will one of the top movie stars in the world be able to survive, when he doesnt even know who - or what- he is up against?
Filmed like an art-house project, I Love Your Work offers thoughtful insight to fame from both the celebrity's and the fan's points of view. When you're a celebrity, every fan is a potential stalker. Or at least that's how movie star Gray Evans (Giovanni Ribisi) sees it. An A-list actor married to a sex symbol, Gray wants to see things clearly in black and white. But his world is a cloudy haze of gray. Are his flashbacks of a comely girlfriend (Christina Ricci) hallucinations or memories of a simpler, happier time? Are his encounters with a stoic fan (Jason Lee) the prelude to his demise, or the manifestation of his paranoia? Director Adam Goldberg doesn't make this clear, but that's also clearly his intent. The drama offers a charismatic performance by Franka Potente (Run Lola Run, The Bourne Identity) as Gray's frustrated wife. But Ribisi--at his twitchiest--is an unconvincing movie star, appearing more like a run-down wannabe than a full-fledged insider. I Love Your Work? Not so much. --Jae-Ha KimSee all Editorial Reviews

This was one of the best movie I've seen all year. Guliana Rabissi (sp?) is PHENOMINAL. People giving this movie low ratings must not understand the complex, multi-demintional... Read morePublished on February 22, 2007 by Tyler Hacke
