Naked Mark Ruffalo

I watched In the Cut last night, mainly because I am in love with Mark Ruffalo. I’ve heard it’s a horrible movie, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought. The murder-mystery part could have been removed though–it was lame and the film was clearly more interested in examining male-female relationships. It didn’t quite integrate the murder into that so well, even if they were trying to use it as metaphor for masculine agression/sexuality/power struggle etc.

But there were a lot of cliches here that they managed to pull off–the writer/English teacher getting involved with the brutish male cop, for example, is usually bullshit but here they didn’t make it some love-sees-past-class-differences utopia–she’s hot for him because he’s a brute, but beyond sex it’s pretty clear they have nothing in common and it’s ambiguous whether they’ll really end up together. I liked that.
