High Fidelity: Directed by Stephen Frears. With John Cusack, Iben Hjejle, Todd Louiso, Jack Black. Rob, a record store owner and compulsive list maker, recounts his top five breakups, including the one in progress.

“Who says familiarity breeds contempt? In this film of heart break, betrayal, true friendship, and love, Cusak adapts Hornbyu0026#39;s book perfectly, melding self doubt, fear of death, and a search for truth with modern cinema and pop music. Rob, Dick, and Barry are all struggling men in their late twenties (thirties in the book) trying to find a way to identify themselves, and live at peace. Rob has the most conflict as he flounders through one relationship to another, never getting comfortable, and always finding a way to mess it up. Itu0026#39;s a brilliant tale of coming to terms with reality, and having a bit of fun along the way. The casting was pheonimal, scenes perfectly picked, and music parallelling that of the mood set in the book. Itu0026#39;s just a shame so much had to be cut. I would recommend this movie to anyone with a calloused ear and a desire to finally relate with a character.”
