Hideous

First clip from Krasinski's flick, Hideous, based upon the David Foster Wallace book, debuting at Sundance.

It's hard to tell from this clip, but it sadly doesn't look very good at this point.

I don't think this clip is the best representation of the film. It served a purpose -- you can't tell stories of hideous men without including That Guy -- and in a way that's exactly what's wrong with it. It's pat, it's been said before, and that's not what one expects when David Foster Wallace is the source.

Anyway, I though the film was an exceptional first feature, especially considering the subject matter (a work that many thought wasn't adaptable) and the filmmaker (an actor that Ill admit I pretty much considered a light item until seeing the film).
