I Heart Huckabees

David O. Russell (Spanking the Monkey, Flirting with Disaster, Three Kings) wrote and directed this very odd comedy, which plays out like the unholy love child of screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich) and philosopher Immanual Kant. Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore) plays an unhappy environmentalist who hires a pair of "existential detectives" (Lily Tomlin and Dustin Hoffman) to figure out the meaning of his life. Jude Law, Naomi Watts and Mark Wahlberg are around for various reasons, most of which will escape the grasp of average audiences. (And, frankly, I didn't get it too clearly either.) 105 minutes
