Adapted from the lauded feminist novel, I LOVE DICK is set in a colorful academic community in Marfa, Texas. It tells the story of a struggling married couple, Chris and Sylvere, and their obsession with a charismatic professor named Dick. Told in Rashomon-style shifts of POV, I LOVE DICK charts the unraveling of a marriage, the awakening of an artist and the deification of a reluctant messiah.

A case in point re what truly awful writing can do to a great idea
22 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Breaks my heart to see such a low rating when I see the structure and potential of this little 'coulda-been-somebody.' It's an amazing example of what truly awful writing can do to a great idea. Marfa . . . yay . . . WHAT a good idea. All the posturing in the context of rattlesnakes, trailers, scorpions and trash . . . YES! If ONLY the party dialogue had been written with some perspicacity, originality, verve. Kevin's was good, but Kevin can make anything look good. Never, until this, fully appreciated that fact. Every scene he's in here comes alive. He and Griffin Dunne are the only ones who seemed to remember how to do it. Act.

You couldn't go more wrong than Kathryn Hahn for her part. WOW is she wrong and, then so over the top with her wrongness. Brash and heavy and just plain galumphing ugly. Bad timing. Bad lines, but that's not her fault. Who thought she made ANY sense in that part?

Roberta Colindrez an androgynous zing for the eye. And then nothing. No skills.

Besides Kevin, the only interesting thing was the grave.

I didn't feel I'd wasted my time, however, if only for the stunning beauty of the last scene . . . sigh . . . all of it.

I wish somebody would fix this little gem. It could be SO MUCH FUN. I Love Dick.

And it went to Series and was just plain horrible. So I stand by all of the above. Too bad.
