I Heart Huckabees

An exuberant offbeat comedy in which Dustin Hoffman and Lily Tomlin play existential detectives hired by kindhearted local poet and activist Albert Markovski (Jason Schwartzman) to investigate the meaning of three coincidences that could hold the key to life. The investigation soon involves other clients such as passionate, vulnerable fireman Tom Corn (Mark Wahlberg), cunning sales exec Brad Stand (Jude Law) and hot spokesmodel with an identity crisis, Dawn Campbell (Naomi Watts). The hilarious case is further complicated when the detectives' seductive French nemesis Caterine Vauban (Isabelle Huppert) lures Albert and Tom into her way of seeing things. Outstanding performances and outrageous comedy make this smart, elating, poignant film from director David O. Russell "a snort-out-loud-funny master class of controlled chaos." - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
