Customer Reviews

By the end, he's gone from an innocent muslim to the stupidest man in the world.
Tim Lieder
I don't want to give away what happens at the *very* end though- two surprises actually, both of which are major and inappropriate to spoil for the readers.
B. E Jackson
There is some major--albeit confused--contempt for the trendy and the 'progressive,' who, assumedly, inhabit Stanzler's personal and professional life.

This rollercoaster ride of a film was my #1 film when I saw it at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival, and if nothing else, it is certainly a film that made the biggest impact. When businesswoman Phoebe (Penn) hops into a cab driven by the Arabic Ashade (Kechiche) neither he nor the audience could possibly predict where this cab drive will lead. Along the way we meet Eloise (Bouchez), Ashade's sister-in-law, who is struggling to provide assistance to her husband, who was deported from the country after running afoul of the heightened post 9/11 security procedures at the airport. There is also Phyllis (Sandra Oh) Phoebe's co-worker, who is unaware of the drama unfolding around her.

Stanzler wrote SORRY, HATERS (the title comes from an MTV-like network's reality show) in response to the emotional impact of the terrorist attacks of 9/11 on ordinary residents of New York City. His screenplay is complex and surprising, but with much more depth than some of the twists and turns might suggest. The acting by Kechiche, Bouchez, and Oh is top-notch, but it's Robin Wright Penn who truly shines in SORRY, HATERS and her fearless, powerful performance will leave you breathless.

Unfortunately we don't see very much of Robin Wright Penn; she's like a rare vintage wine, and you savor what little you get. In a movie full of twists and turns, Penn has us going as a high-powered exec, then a lowly number-cruncher, followed by a psycho terrorist, then suddenly she is a vulnerable sweatheart on the verge of redemption, followed by a cold-blooded psychopath. Sybil cannot compete with Robin Wright Penn; and that is giving away too much. To enjoy the full effect of the movie, it is better to take it at face value and just follow along to be astounded by the depth of disturbance that 9/11 could create in one individual.

So we're five years on from 9/11 now. Big Hollywood is coming out with its exploitation flicks. Having seen none of the forthcoming productions, I will reserve judgement, but did Nick Cage really need to go there? What we have in "Sorry, Haters" is something far more personal and downstream, a really complex 9/11 ramification that somehow transmogrifies a victim into a victimizer. The film's final twist may have been unnecessary, but at least the writer/director was able to one-up a savvy audience and went places that you just could not see coming. The movie is helped considerably by excellent supporting roles, Abdellatif Kechiche and Sandrah Oh shine in a tightly scripted nail-biter.

I haven't been so disturbed by a character in a film, since Robert DeNiro played Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver. Robin Wright Penn is Phoebe, a woman traumatized by the events of 9/11. Ashade--played by Abdel Kechiche--is a devout Muslim man whose brother has been incarcerated by our government for suspicious activities.

We meet Ashade as he desperately tries to raise funds for a lawyer, in order to free his brother. His attraction to his brother's wife complicates matters, leaving him guilt-ridden and shameful. Events are set into motion when Phoebe, a woman on the brink, gets into his taxi.

The nuanced script, written and directed by Jeff Stanzler, builds tension perfectly as Ashade is drawn deeper into Phoebe's madness and escalating purpose. The helplessness of his situation is palpable. Penn's performance is pitch-perfect as Phoebe, a semi-psychotic woman, who is looking for a way to matter. She embodies Phoebe's restlessness, and need to be acknowledged, perfectly; alternating between normalcy, insanity, and curiously, kindness, beautifully. We are powerless as we watch Phoebe's ties to reality dissolve, tangling the desperate and gullible Ashade, further into her dysfunctional lies.

Penn's performance as Phoebe left me inexplicably anxious. Thought-provoking and disturbing, this film will haunt you long after the final credits.

Great film, unpredictable and alarming
I love and own this movie but you may feel repulsed by Robin Wright Penn's character, Phoebe. This film is psychological drama. Miss Penn plays a highly disturbed single, jealous, manipulative individual living in New York City.

Penn's character hides these traits with a mousey, shy and indifferent demeanor. But wait, her personality is ever changing. From the beginning of the film you're trying to figure her character out along with an innocent taxi driver, played by Abdel Kechiche.

Some feel Robin's character became ill because of 911, I think she was already sick prior to the event and uses it to feed her psychosis. However you may interpret this movie you won't forget the alarming brutality of this film.

Robin Write Penn gives a riveting performance that sends you spinning with her changing personality.
Abdel Kechiche character, Ashade's life is victimized to the point of no return.
Unbelievable.........

All the verbiage about muslims and Americans and the whole decadent American culture vs. Good Muslims is really secondary which is actually quite surprising. You get the feeling that the movie was banking on the Muslim/American cultural clash in order to sell itself to a post-9/11 world but the heart of the story is classic femme fatale noir and it pretty much rises and falls on that basic story.

A cab driver picks up a really mean looking woman played by Robin Wright Penn. From the outset, you can tell that's something is wrong with her. She isn't smiling. She's making the cab driver go to New Jersey. She's giving the classic line about "I'll pay you the total of whatever you made last night" which Tom Cruise used in Collateral (Two-Disc Special Edition). Meanwhile the cab driver is presented as a good guy who prays regularly and works hard for his extended family.

The political stuff comes pretty hard when Robin Wright Penn invades the cab driver's home to drink wine and complain about how she's working for an MTV Reality Show called "Sorry, Haters" which features a lot of rich people being ugly rich. She wants him to pull a terrorist attack. He wants to get his brother out of jail and immigrate. She's all full of hatred for America and he's a goodhearted muslim who might have problems but he's basically patriotic even when the cops haul his sister-in-law away and impound his cab based on an anonymous tip from Penn.

However, the political material cannot sustain the story. The meat of the story is Robin Wright Penn trying to use the muslim cab driver to carry out her agenda and manipulating him all along the way.
