The most original romantic comedy I’ve seen in YEARS! Highly recommended.
I may be a jaded old cynic but from time to time a contemporary movie knocks me off my seat. Recently there’s been quite a few -‘May’, ‘Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance’ and ‘Auto Focus’ immediately spring to mind. ‘Secretary’ is another recent gem. This is the most original romantic comedy (very black, mind you) I’ve seen in YEARS! And for something which deals with a lifestyle alien to me (dominance and submission) it’s surprisingly touching, and even managed to get me to shed a tear or two. I had previously enjoyed Maggie Gyllenhaal’s supporting roles in ‘Donnie Darko’ and John Waters’ ‘Cecil B. Demented’ (she played Raven, the make up artist – “Pain is pleasure! Slavery is freedom! Suicide for Satan!’ remember?), but her performance here is first class and is guaranteed to turn her into a major cult figure if not an actual genuine STAR. I confess that I now have a major crush on her to boot (I’m sure I’m not alone!). James Spader is also very, very good. While I admired him appearing in Cronenberg’s ‘Crash’ a few years ago most of his other film choices have been safe ones and to be honest I’d pretty much given up on him as an actor. But it just goes to show what an actor is capable of with an innovative script and a supportive director. It’s really difficult imagining any other two actors playing these roles any better. In the supporting cast Jeremy Davies also surprised me. I’d been getting a bit tired of his crazy shtick in previous roles, especially his extremely irritating performance in ‘The Million Dollar Hotel’, but he did a much more subtle job in this movie, and it really worked for me. This is my first experience with director Steven Shainberg but I was impressed. I now want to try and see his previous movie, the Jim Thompson adaptation ‘Hit Me’. I also look forward to his next movie, because if ‘Secretary’ is any indication of his talent then he’s sure to come up with something very special. Highly recommend.
oh, james, oh, maggie…
How refreshing!! It has been quite some time since I went to the movies and walked out feeling I could wholeheartedly endorse the film I just saw. When asked why this film was so good by my coworkers, I responded “the actors’ performances, the sets, the script, the content, essentially everything.” And so it is, everything. Thank the spirits that flow someone still has the ability, honesty, and energy to make such a film in the land of fakery and deception. While the relationship depicted is that of a sadist and a masochist and this is what will get played up in the press, the point is the relationship and the near impossibility of love working without complete honesty. Bravo.
