LEN & COMPANY REVIEWED
“Len & Company” finds Rhys Ifans playing a former pop star turned producer. After flaming out dramatically, he retreats to a private getaway where he tries to find himself. Fortunately, his bastard son and a new female pop star find him first. Everyone forms a giant circle of co-dependency and then work out their issues. Sound good? Well, that’s the entire movie.
The movie is supposed to explore the irony of a talented producer that is isolated, yet is needed by everyone else in his life. After 30 minutes, you get it. But, the film spends 97 minutes trying to slam it into the dirt. If that’s your sort of thing, check it out. Honestly, I’m giving it a lot of leeway because the cast almost makes this bearable. Whomever cast this film deserves a pay raise. Everyone else got what they got.
