This film has it all...great music suitable to the period (grunge/alternative), fantastic use of place (Seattle in a starring role), interesting and quirky characters, and true to life portrayal of young people in their twenties negotiating through life as they find their true passions. I especially loved Campbell Scott's performance and he is the true star of this film. His job is working on creating a "Super Train" to get Seattlites out of their cars and onboard for their commute, because he believes that "if you give them great coffee and great music, they'll ride." His girlfriend, played by Kyra Sedgwick, has her pulse on the masses, by telling him, "I still love my car, though." She's an environmentalist who drives an old gass guzzling clunker of an automobile, which Campbell pokes fun at after a lunch date. Its a joy to watch their relationship grow from initial doubts to lover games about how soon after a date one should call to other challenges that crop up. I especially love the scene when Linda (Sedgwick) peruses Steve's (Campbell Scott) record albums and gets nostalgic about her college days. That scene epitomizes the exciting "getting to know you" stage of dating and rings absolutely true.Read more ›
Singles is a movies about a handful of post-college twenty somethings mapping out and searching for romance and intimacy against the post-industrial grunge backdrop of Seattle. Don't worry, it's not a film about beautiful, angst-ridden people who complain about everything. In fact, one of the best things about this movie is that these people aren't overly cool. They aren't malice-filled, perfect-looking, spoiled, or particularly trendy. The beauty of these characters is that they are real. They are vulnerable, insecure, modest, humorous, and idiosyncratic. While watching this movie, you never get the sense of feeling threatened by these characters or feeling any hate toward them (even in spite of their faults). Instead, through their dating successes and failures, through their small triumphs and heartaches, through their good and bad behavior, you continually root for these people, you feel what they feel, and you get a sense that out there, somewhere are real people who are single, and who must deal with the pleasure and pain of being single.
I think this is Cameron Crowe's third film (1st-Fast Times at Ridgemont High 2nd-Say Anything 4th-Jerry McGuire). As are all his films, this film is very funny, very sympathetic, and very humane. What makes this film so good and so watchable is the fact that its humor and its story are derived from the way real, ordinary people conduct their day to day lives.Read more ›
