Editorial Reviews

Neve Campbell is an arresting enigma in When Will I Be Loved, one of writer-director James Toback's most mysterious and successful minimalist dramas about sex, deception, and mutable identities in New York City. Campbell plays twentysomething beauty Vera, whose nude shower scene during the film's opening credits looks more like mythic preparation for a soon-to-be-fateful day than brazen exploitation. Ensconced in a fantastic loft paid for by her parents (Barry Primus, Karen Allen), the unemployed Vera embarks on an odyssey that begins with a mutually deceitful job interview with a college professor (Toback), leads to misadventures in questionable perception in Central Park, and climaxes with Vera's successful manipulation of two powerful men, one a craven lover (Fred Weller) and the other an Italian billionaire (Dominic Chianese) trying to get her in bed for a lot of money. Provocative as a good urban legend, the film sticks with one for a long time. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Neve Campbell, Dominic Chianese and Fred Weller star in this smoldering erotic thriller about a femme fatale exploring the frightening reach of her sexual power - and the red-hot fusion of money, power and desire. Directed by James Toback, When Will I Be Loved is an "illumination of sexual and identity politics" (Slant Magazine) that sizzles and seduces.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neve Campbell does a lot more than shower in this one January 28, 2005
If you are watching a naked woman taking a shower and what is communicated is not only sexuality but also power and confidence, then the performance of the actress certainly has to be credited. But writer-director James Toback also knows how to film Neve Campbell in the opening scene of "When Will I Be Loved," giving her character the time and space to make even the most juvenile minded viewers realize that there is much more than a naked body in a really great looking shower area being displayed for their gratification, whether they want to admit as much or not.

Juxtaposed with Campbell's Vera taking a shower are scenes of Fred Weller's Ford on the streets of New York, using his cell phone to hustle some deals. This montage suggests a connection and we discover Ford is Vera's boyfriend. The relationship seems one of fire and ice, for Ford is always in motion, always trying to work and con, and Vera is calm, cool, and collected. It is not until we see them making love that we have any real idea of what she gets out of the relationship, because Vera comes from money and does not need Ford to take care of her. But the idea that Vera is smarter than Ford is key to what happens in this film, as is the idea that she is as much of a con man as he is, just more subtle and decidedly more effective.

Ford's latest target is Count Tomasso Lupo (Dominic Chianese), an Italian millionaire media mogul, but all of the hustler's overtures are rebuffed until the Count sees Vera. The count is a creature of instinct and after seeing Vera a couple of times he makes Ford a counteroffer: $100,000 to sleep with Vera. At this point we are all thinking "Indecent Proposal" and the parallels are so obvious that the characters talk about that film as a reference point.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing but Inscrutable Psychosexual Drama. January 28, 2005
"When Will I Be Loved?" is a psychosexual snippet written and directed by James Toback. It doesn't seem like a complete story, but a vague character study of a sexually adventurous young woman named Vera (Neve Campbell) who has a way of knowing what she wants and getting it from just about everyone she meets. She allows her lover, Ford (Frederick Weller), a fast-talking hustler always out to make a buck, to introduce her to a wealthy Italian media mogul (Dominic Chianese) who desires her passionately, in exchange for payment in cash.

Vera is interesting, because she knows exactly what she wants and where the source of her power lies. It's not surprising that she succeeds given those conditions. But Vera is so narcissistic that she is thoroughly unlikable. And the character study fails in that her motives are often inscrutable. She seems to know what she wants and perhaps even why she wants it. But we don't. Vera has money. She has power. She may be looking for love, although she has an odd way of going about it. She certainly wants revenge. But that's not the whole story. The film does make the audience wonder about Vera, but we also wonder what the point of it all is. A lot of men want to help Vera discover herself through them. They see her as they want her to be. And she takes advantage. But that's not news. And what advantage she sees in it isn't clear.

Neve Campbell and Frederick Weller contribute good performances. The first third of the film is spent establishing the characters by cross-cutting between them, soundtrack blaring. That's too long and too loud. "When Will I Be Loved?" may be of some interest if you're a fan of psychosexual intrigue. But if I had to describe the film in one word, it would be "inconclusive", both narratively and thematically.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amoral, Narcissistic Beauty June 5, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The show opens and seems to be two separate films. In the first, Neve Campbell seems to be a young woman who is looking for a relationship and job, trying to find her way in New York. She seems to be sexually adventurous but naïve. In the second, we see young hustler scheming to make a variety of cons. He is a shifty character who is easy to dislike. Only the second part is correct.

The woman is exploring her sexuality but she is anything but innocent. The hustler is her boyfriend who not only appreciates her beauty but appreciates that she is independently wealthy. He wants to use her in every sense of the word. He finds himself used instead.

The girl uses her sexuality as a weapon and it is not merely a defensive weapon. She uses it to get want she wants and sometimes what she wants is just to stick it to someone else. It is a potent weapon she wields with skill. The path of destruction she leaves is awesome in its thoroughness and casual attitude towards right and wrong. Some of the victims are deserving. The hustler comes to mind. Others are less so; the Italian billionaire is merely smitten and has too much money but does not deserve his fate. Other victims are just that: victims. The parents who think their daughter is a nice girl come most readily to mind but so does anyone else who mistakenly crosses her path.

This is a good example of artful moviemaking but I did not enjoy it overly much. The camera work is well done as is the acting. The nudity is brief, in context and not explicit. The problem for me is the lack of joy. It is a sad tale.
