Ben Singer (Matthew Broderick) is a failed childrens folk singer, a career proofreader, a less-than-extraordinary weekend dad, and perhaps the most negative man alive. Floundering in all aspects of his life, Ben's only comfort comes from regular chess games and friendly debates on game theory with his Senegalese roommate Ibou (Michael Kenneth Williams). When Ibou is suddenly struck ill, Ben's pessimistic worldview seems unequivocally confirmed. It takes an extended visit from Ibou's sister Khadi (Sanaa Lathan) for Ben to realize that cynicism may be all a matter of perspective.

(gb) wrote: With an upcoming gallery opening, Agathe(Isabelle Huppert) finds her plate full. Then there is a school meeting about standardized testing which is hijacked by Patrick(Benoit Poelvoorde), a laborer, who is more interested in school lunches. What Agathe is also interested in is the continuing renovations in the apartment she shares with her longtime significant other Francois(Andre Dussollier), a publisher, which is where Patrick reenters the picture. To its credit, "My Worst Nightmare" does not exactly have a nightmarish scenario. In fact, it has an archetypical set-up for romantic comedy in its pairing of opposites who initially misunderstand each other. But then director Anne Fontaine's aesthetic is prickly, not exactly conducive to this sort of thing. Even worse is the fact that she does not understand Isabelle Huppert who instead of playing the monster that was expected turns it around to find the humanity in Agathe while making it look so very effortless. That ironically undermines Francois' mortal fear of Agathe and a good deal of the comedy, even as Andre Dussollier is very funny here.

(us) wrote: Almost a great parable. Snappier editing, better special effects and the removal of a ridiculous sex scene would have created a movie that was memorable for the right reasons.

(fr) wrote: This is one of Mary Pickford's best silent films, and also one of her best performances. Spooky, and touching as well, and it's unusual and fascinating piece of cinematic history. Beautifully done.
(de) wrote: Brilliant. Shockingly brilliant story and performances and production. I did not see this film in theaters because professional reviewers panned it so widely as muddled and long. What silly notions. This is perhaps not Syriana's equal, but it explores the philosophy of terrorism much more thoroughly and sympathetically. "During the revolution the British considered Americans terrorists. How soon they forget." -From the film... just sixty years ago the Brits felt the same about Jews in Palestine... How soon we all forget. Watch this movie if you have not, and enjoy a masterpiece.
