Quotes

[first lines]
Danny's Friend: We're not filmmakers, you know? We're just a ragtag bunch of people doing something that is technologically already almost passe. You know, that's a great problem with movies, is that they're always old-fashioned. It takes too long to make a movie. By the time your idea's on the screen, it's already dead.

Someone to Love (1987)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This film from Henry Jaglom has him playing a director who invites a bunch of people to an old theatre that is about to be demolished. Once there he wants to discuss with everyone the subject of love. Why do we need love? Should we need love? Why are people still single at their age?

I was aware of director Jaglom before I watched this film, which was actually the very first I've seen from him. I've read that he's the type of director that likes to put a personal diary out there on film and that he often hires friends and family members for the roles in his films.

SOMEONE TO LOVE isn't the greatest movie I've ever seen and I wouldn't even call it a good one but it does have a certain feel and look that keeps it mildly entertaining. I do think it would have worked better as a short film or one that lasted around a hour. Clocking in at 108-minutes, the film runs on way too long to keep the viewer completely glued to the stories that people are telling.

The performances are good for the most part and as I said the film has a certain feel and look that makes it fascinating to say the least. Orson Welles, playing himself here, is seen through various clips as he talks about the subject at hand. This here turned out to be his final film appearance so that alone makes the film memorable.
