Hidden Gems: No, it's not that butt-ass-horrible TV Show

Stanley Tucci doesn’t get enough credit sometimes. I really started paying attention to him after his performance in “The Devil Wears Prada”, but he’s got quite a resume going all the back to “Miami Vice”.

He directs and stars along with the always beautiful Patrica Clarkson in “Blind Date”. They play a couple trying to cope with the loss of their young daughter by engaging in a series of blind dates… each one stranger then the last. The games can’t last forever however and leads to yet another tragedy.

Tucci and Clarkson show off the best of their veteran acting chops here. A temper tantrum here, a punch there, buttfucking here.

The concept of the movie is so simple, and takes place on only 2 sets. Low budget film at it’s best.

We get the treat to see two great actors show off everything they’ve learned during the years in a single film. Wonderful acting and mysterious narration keep you guessing. You never know what the fuck they’re going to be next. That might be frustrating for some… but great for others. This is making my Best of 2009 list for sure.

A+
