Product Description

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 doesn’t even know who - or what- he is up against?

Amazon.com

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 Kim

2.0 out of 5 stars I don't love your work March 30, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Oh joy. Another movie about how tough it is to be famous, rich and liked.

Actor/director Adam Goldberg's "I Love Your Work" attempts to tackle that subject, but the "poor little rich actor" storyline merely ends up feeling self-indulgent and whiny. Several of the actors are talented, but most of them -- except for star Giovanni Ribisi -- are misused.

Gray Evans (Giovanni Ribisi) is famous, rich and miserable. He married Mia (Franka Potente) after seeing her in a French film, but their marriage is crumbling because he thinks she's cheating with Elvis Costello, who is friendly with Mia. Distraught, Gray ends up in a video store, where he becomes fascinated with a young video store clerk (Joshua Jackson) and his loving girlfriend (Marisa Coughlan).

As his sanity begins to crumble, Gray stalks the couple, and starts to have visions of an ex-girlfriend (Christina Ricci) who reminds him of a happier time. He begins to reimagine his past, pre-fame life through the clerk and girlfriend, and soon the world of sanity is beginning to fade away.

Perhaps this movie would be more palatable if it hadn't been done by an actor. In the hands of someone like Wes Anderson, this movie would have been brilliant, dark and understatedly satirical. From Goldberg, it just seems self-indulgent. It has nothing new to say, and it doesn't add any sparkle to the old stuff.

And while Goldberg tries hard to make this a dark satire, he takes his Big Message too seriously. It starts off well, with Gray teetering on the edge of insanity, and imagining that everybody is watching, touching and pursuing him. For a short time, it has the elements of a lightweight Fellini movie.

But after the first half hour, Goldberg goes wild with the camera tricks and the plot.

1.0 out of 5 stars Some things are best left unexamined! May 27, 2006
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars I don't know about this one October 4, 2006
Format:DVD
I really don't know about this one. It started out really interesting but just fell off in the end. It was really wierd, because I really went from one end of the spectrum to the other. I really like it to I really don't? After a while it kinda got all artsy and confusing. Maybe it was suppose to , but I think that the guy making this film wanted you to think too much. Could have been alot better if it explained more. It was alright.

2.0 out of 5 stars a bore October 6, 2011
Format:DVD
This film is too long, getting bogged down in confusing and complex jumpy scenes.
The first third of the movie was nearly impossibe to hear, and the closed caption so fast that I had to continually press pause to study the dialogue. Why the cough? It seemed to play a prominent role, but led to nothing. The cover on the DVD is misleading. I kept watching even though it was tedious, because I thought there would be a thriller ending with a murder. I long suspected a dumb ending and it certainly was.

5.0 out of 5 stars very interesting noncommercial film January 17, 2009
By Hakim
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
not an easy film to watch... but fascinating.

ribisi is riveting in every scene, and the camera work and production design are first rate.

the layering of plots and points of view is a wild ride, and sets up the audience for the dissolution of the main character's personality.

the complex psychological underpinnings of the story make it a bit effortful, but the overall effect is worth the effort.

not your standard date movie.

If you love cinema that pushes the envelope, then I Love Your Work may be what you are looking for. That is, if this is the kind of movie you are looking for and if you are ready. This is not an *accessible* movie, and the plot serves only as a backdrop for the real story: the inner-workings of an alienated, paranoid and crumbling mind. For those that appreciate the psychological in film, this movie is a treasure trove. I think anybody who truly appreciates, studies and aspires to great acting can also learn much from Mr. Ribisi's performance here.

Some people have focused on the plot of this picture and come away with the impression that this is a *woe is me* tale about the grips of celebrity. I see this movie more as a character study of a very needy and praise-dependant introvert who is losing his grip on reality. The fact that the main character is a famous actor is useful in providing a personality type which can be vulnerable to needing the approval and praise of others. Indeed, not all actors have this need, certainly not to the debilitating level of Ribisi's character here. But the need for admiration and approval is something that is probably bigger for actors, and definitely something the rest of the world can relate to.

Granted this film is not for the general public. This is not meant to be watched for surface level entertainment, nor is it meant to be structured like the traditional story many people often expect. To portray the stream of consciousness of somebody's fractured mind on film is a very difficult thing to do. It does not lend itself to traditional plot structure and scene sequences.
