New Films: In the Company of Men
Director: Neil Labute Starring: Aaron Eckhart, Stacy Edwards, Matt Malloy
Saturday 31 January 1998
None of the behaviour in the film has the ring of authenticity which would make it truly disturbing - you recognise the distance that the story places between itself and the audience, and it stops you responding to the film on a gut level. It's an intellectual exercise, and not a very sophisticated one at that, its aims being to stir the complacency of political correctness.
That said, you can admire its cool, crisp style without buying into its despairing version of reality.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
