Who Magazine here in Aus gave Pippa Lee 4 out of 5 stars! Keanu was not mentioned in the write-up, only in the credits, but the whole cast was given a big thumbs up for their convincing performances!! Hope to see this again when it gets a slightly wider release in the next month.

Here's a little video clip from the press conference for Pippa Lee @ TIFF. Thought I'd post it here in case anyone would like to have a look at it. Our Man's # three after Ellen Page and Nicolas Cage.

Here's a little video clip I just found from the Toronto International Film Festival. Nothing much going on in it, but it's out there on the net, so I thought I'd post a link to it:

Wow. A film review where the reviewer actually reviews Keanu's performance. And not a whoa in sight! Amazing. :-)

Keanu Reeves is known for playing emotionless characters, such Neo in “The Matrix” and Don John in “Much Ado About Nothing.” In this film, though, Reeves works well as Chris, a 35-year-old recluse living alone with his adoptive parents. Reeves uses his subtle acting style to create a stoic character who gradually shows signs of compassion and provides hope despite the characters’ tainted pasts.

'subtle acting style' ?
*reads again*
*cleans eyeglasses*
*reads yet again*

it's really there, and no sarcasm.
oh well, miracles do happen ;) :D

In addition to Wright's work, Keanu Reeves - as the convenience store clerk - delivers a quiet, subtle performance. Miller said Reeves is "a very committed, humble actor, with a lot of openness to ideas." She said she helped him with his performance by creating a "trusting environment."

"That was very important to him. That's the sort of atmosphere I like to create, one where actors feel free to take chances."

'subtle performance', AGAIN?
someone pinch me, this can't be real XD

Wow... Saw it. Liked it. Understood about half of it. Saw it only because Keanu was in it.

Kinda hard to explain. You'd probably have to be in my shoes to understand.

Tiny Keanu mention in this article about tattoo artist Joshua Lord and his work, including the fake tattoo on Keanu's chest in Pippa:

second part of the post.

a review I like. it puts words to my thoughts about the movie; it reminds me that I also thought 'Woody Allen' while watching it for the second time.
and I can also relate to the 'relating' thing. My life was and is sheltered and dull compared to Pippa's lives and yet I can relate to her.

I just saw this film, and loved it. It's another one of his films that you have to see more than once to really "get" it.
