I Fucking Hate You (2008) – By Brian Morton

 I can’t help but think that when this crossed Editor Duane Martin’s desk, he couldn’t help but think of me, since the "F" word is one of my all-time favorites. And, in the spirit of full confession, I was very excited when I saw the title. Yes!! Finally, a movie that actually speaks to me and the anger management issues that I have. Well, not only was I totally wrong about this movie…I couldn’t have been happier to be wrong!

What you get in I Fucking Hate You isn’t a hate filled movie at all, quite the opposite. Here’s the story, Ron and Carol have broken up, when Ron returns some of Carol’s things, the only thing she wants to keep isn’t in the pile. So, clearly seeing an opportunity, Ron invites Carol back to his apartment to get the mug that she wants. Once there, Ron reveals (in a very unique way) that he still have feelings for Carol and, after leaving, we get the idea that Carol isn’t totally finished with Ron either.

The real cool thing about I Fucking Hate You is that there was no script, no planning, it was an improv on the part of cast and crew! And, despite all the obvious problems that I’m sure shooting like that brought, what they’ve given us is a beautiful little movie, in looks and more. I Fucking Hate You is not at all what you might imagine, it’s a love story with more heart than I’ve seen in a while, and the ‘love song’ that closes the story is both funny and touching…in fact, it’s one of those songs that I’d love to have a copy of!! You can find out more about I Fucking Hate You by heading over to the Sabi Pictures website. I’m giving I Fucking Hate You four out of four cigars, because it’s not only an attention getting title, but it’s one that really does mean something in the film…on more than one level. So, until next time, when I’ll still be giddy from being able to get the "F" bomb so many times into one review without having Duane send me one of those "control yourself" emails, remember that the best movies are bad movies.
