FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

title: FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
year: 2006
cast: Christopher Guest, Eugene Levy, Fred Willard, Catherine O'Hara, Harry Shearer, Parker Posey
writer/director: Christopher Guest
rating: *

During a commentary for one of his better films, Christopher Guest mentions that he enjoys showing his characters as completely pathetic, and enjoys punishing them for their banal narcissism. But his editors will sway him into submission, making the characters more enjoyable and/or endearing. But now, it's apparent, Guest gets his wish: not only doing away with the documentary style, but making these people totally unlikeable and deserving of the guillotine. Go back to the old style, Chris, this film is SHIT sandwich.
