He's very proud, he tells me, of Henry's Crime, which he shepherded for five years from conception to release. "Henry has no dream. He's gone along with his life. I feel that's a real story. Sometimes we just go along with things. With him, it stops being OK, and when he decides to rob the bank, he starts to live. It's preposterous, but hopefully it's delightful, too. To me, it's a really good afternoon film. I've had a couple of people come out after it and say, 'Wow, we saw your film and we just wanna go have sex now.' Maybe it just makes you wanna hold someone close. Of all the comments I've heard, that's my favourite." He's missing a trick, I tell him, if he doesn't plaster that quote all over the poster. "Yeah!" he laughs, warming to the idea. "'Watch Henry's Crime! Guaranteed sex! If your girl doesn't put out after this, we'll give you half your money back!'"

Reeves is a snug fit as Henry. His knack for playing the blank page, the human blur, has been mistaken in the past for stupidity or vacancy. Not at all. What he has is a singular Zen-like serenity, a stillness and poise, which can be just as hypnotic amidst the kinetic fury of Speed and The Matrix as it is in the more contemplative dreamscapes of Little Buddha or A Scanner Darkly. The misconception is partly Reeves's own fault.

Here's a video interview on lovefilm.com:

http://www.lovefilm.com/interviews/Henry-s-Crime-Keanu-Reeves

Edit:

ITV's Daybreak interview with Keanu should be here but I get an error message. Can anyone else see it?

http://www.itv.com/daybreak/entertainment/film/whengrainnemeetkeanu/

Edit 2:

I really wanted to watch Keanu on BBC's The One Show, but it tells me it's not available "in your area". I guess that means only people in the UK can see this, then?

That very same thing happened to me with the Norton show. I suppose that's what it means. :((

Close description . . . very close . . .


Keanu Reeves is brilliant in his restraint and in his dexterity especially in roles where he emerges from dispassionate stoicism and opens the emotional floodgates slowly with control and precision. His style, subtle, graceful yet bold and veracious lends itself perfectly to this character.

. . . closer :p

There are 500 million uploads at this link (slight exaggeration maybe) so I don't know if K's is there - yet - or not, but might be worth watching for it to show up?

... isn't it interesting how almost all of K's latest movies seem to 'win over' several otherwise reluctant critics/reviewers? For some it was Constantine, for the other reviewer it was Street Kings, for this one it's Henry...
To each one's own indeed, but this proves once again the audience sees only what it wants to see... ( or was it 'they'? my English is failing me...)

@Spark - There there, dear it's okay. There's still time for the theaters in your area to pick it up. Besides, I'm sure it's a good movie to watch comfortably on one's couch, wrapped in a blanket, eating microwave popcorn - without dozens inconsiderate dipshits talking all around you :p

@Luca - eye of the beholder, indeed

OK, now I'm both sad and profoundly miffed. I can't seem to access just about any Keanu interviews in the UK. Right now he's on Magic FM (http://www.magic.co.uk/sectional.asp?id=27845), but their online player (http://player.magic.co.uk/browser.php)blocks all non-UK IP addresses.

Argh.

Ahahahahaha! OK, feeling better now that I just saw/heard Keanu say "f***ing" in an interview with Empire magazine. It's on Club Keanu's webshow:

I just received a Tweet from UK Glamour magazine journo @JennSelby saying they're still editing the Keanu interview for their website http://www.glamourmagazine.co.uk. I love the way Twitter makes it so much easier to communicate with people.
