Today I finally got around to watching High Fidelity all the way through. I generally like John Cusak and dig his characters. He played the brooding, introspective Rob here that recalls all his past relationships and wonders where everything went wrong. I really wasn’t wild about the character of Laura, who he ended up getting into this spiral over, but I enjoyed following the story of him getting to this point.
I especially loved the record store Rob owned and he and his friends’ obsession talking about music and talking so geekily about different artists. Jack Black gave a great performance, playing a wacky character he’s generally good at playing. The general soundtrack to the film went along well with the whole story.
