Maze (2000)

Title: Maze
Released: 2000
Genre: Romance
Runtime: 97 min
Country: USA
Language: English

Plot Summary: An artist with Tourette Syndrome falls in love with his best friend's pregnant girlfriend.

Comments: One of the most touching stories I've seen. I had no idea what to expect with this movie, renting it on a whim... but it moved me more than a movie has in a very long time. Rob Morrow does a fantastic job of portraying this tormented artist who also has a wonderful sense of humor. The characters are believable and real, and I instantly was drawn into the story. I love it when a movie captures me that way, and I really care about what happens to the characters. This movie is insightful, artistic, emotional, funny and educational (especially for someone like me who knew nothing about what it's like to have Tourette Syndrome). Also, the soundtrack is unique and moving - VERY original. There is some nudity but not sexually (women posing for Lyle Maze, the artist) and some bad language. What struck me most about the movie was the innocence in the love portion of the story. It's beautiful and complicated like love tends to be. Go rent it!

Personal quotes

[talking about Jim Carrey]: "He has tremendous charm. He has an enormous heart, just a big big heart. I think that is the thing. I think if you look at his other work you can see that there, which is what makes his characters more then just mimicry. I think that is why his work has hit so hard. Because there is just more there. So with this one you see more of his humanity."

[about her character on Truman Show, The (1998)]: "Well the thing that was interesting was that we sort of did these back stories about these characters, and where they were and what was going on with them. And when the movie picks up, Hanna Gill, who plays Meryl Burbank, is aware of the fact that she is losing her influence over Truman. He's not happy at home. He's beginning to get agitated. He's beginning to think of things outside the house, and she can feel that she is losing her power. So consequently the smile gets bigger and bigger, and the desperation, that is why there is that intense undertow to her. Because she knows she is losing it."

[about her character in Truman Show, The (1998)]: "The concept of The Truman Show - it was so much fun. What gave us all an additional challenge was that those of us who were the cast of The Truman Show play the actors but playing a role. So we did all this elaborate backstory. So I made up my actress name Hanna Gill, who plays Meryl Burbank, who is married to Truman Burbank. So we did all this double layering of character work not really knowing what was going to come through. I'm glad that some of the people who have seen the movie can say that they can actually see it in all of us. All of us who play the characters surrounding Jim in the film, that they can see the double layer."

[about her father]: "My parents were divorced and I didn't grow up with him, but I spent a lot of time around him, and his influence on me has been profound."

(on her fame) "I don't consider myself a celebrity, and I don't consider myself a star."

(on making You Can Count On Me) "Kenny Lonnergan and I locked horns. It was about tiny things that would drive me crazy. He was very specific about his script being word perfect."
