    I will never understand the popularity of “High Fidelity.” God knows I’ve tried. But, for me, hands-down best Cusack performance is the hilarious “Grosse Point Blank.” Damn but I love that movie.

  2. Ferguson Says:

    Personally, I adored “High Fidelity” and found it be a wonderful adaptation of a great novel. Cusack gets completely lost inside Rob Gordon and creates one of the best performances I’ve ever seen in what is, I think, the essential film of its kind.

  3. Rodger Jacobs Says:

    I think my disconnect with the movie, Ferguson, is that as I moved out of my teen years (I’m now 49) and into my twenties, I favored literature and books as devices of personal reflection and contemplation over music and lost my fascination with records and recording artists as an avocation. Not saying one cannot have both in one’s life, naturally, I simply, for whatever damn reason, chose not to.

  4. Ferguson Says:

    Well then, I could easily see why the relating factor would not be there for you with that particular movie.

    BTW, if you care to see me blatantly contradict myself, read my comment under your Tom Waits thread.
