The stars' acting trumps the movie's few flaws. The premise pulls you in, but it's kind of hard to believe that a press-hounded actress would invite a reporter into her apartment. It's equally unbelievable that a reporter who once covered war-torn Sarajevo wouldn't recognize a major battle when he sees it, never mind how pretty and perfumed the enemy is.

Sienna Miller is supremely confident, emotionally available, and eminently watchable. As Katya, she's an able foil -- and foe -- for Pierre. With only two main characters who are pretty much stuck in one spot, Interview can sometimes feel static, though it certainly avoids becoming claustrophobic. The father-daughter sub-plot feels contrived, and the ending is strangely depleted of energy. Still, it's riveting. Perhaps magazine profiles would be that much more interesting to read if interviews did turn out to be the big free-for-all as this one does.
