'The Interview is Australia's answer to The Usual Suspects, a twisty mystery built around a protracted conversation and an elusive protagonist who is integral in both driving and complicating the narrative. In a career marked by jaw-dropping performances, this film features one of the very best (and most criminally underseen) roles from Hugo Weaving, who is blisteringly good as a bewildered man hauled into the cop shop for crimes he may or may not have committed.
Just as the film appears to have settled into an exploration of whether means justify ends in the context of a rough-as-guts cop who gets results, Monahan and Gordon Davie's screenplay curls into something much more interesting and psychologically evasive.' The Guardian
