One Night Stand- Mike Figgis

From: Marker
Category: Films
Date: 14 December 2001


Mike what happened? It was all working out. Leaving Loss Vegas, writing music. Now you're making films I can't be bothered to see. Maybe it started when you cast Natassya Kinski and Wesley Snipes as intellectuals and Robert Downey as the wise terminal patient. One Night Stand is an afternoon tv issue movie, something to watch between races, plotty and fun. It wants to be witty and surprising but ends up as adolescent sophistication, Jazz. No more blues movies, no more death, no more jazz records, no more casting against type, you can't go back to alcoholic nihilists finding redemption through hookers. And you can't do French clever. Go forward.
