High Fidelity

I recently watched a recording of High Fidelity. I had vague, yet positive memories about seeing it in the theater and so was surprised at how much I liked it when seeing it again.

The adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel, starring John Cusack as a recordstore owner who thoughts about life are stirred up when his girlfriend leaves him is great. Having the main character address the camera and audience directly with information that he is not sharing with the other characters retains much of the internal dialogue that is often lost when a book becomes a movie.

The movie also has a great comic character portrayed by Jack Black, that inspires quit a few laughs.

As a music fan, I also thought that the ideas about the role music plays in people’s lives were also interesting and somewhat insightful.

I think most people would enjoy this movie. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 91.
