Mr. Buscemi will see you now.
The first reviews of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ are out and most are pretty mixed on the film and whether or not it delivers on the white-hot sexuality of the original novel. But here is one film that absolutely brings the raw animal magnetism: ‘Fifty Shades of Buscemi,’ a mashup that inserts the great star of ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ ‘Fargo,’ and so many more into new adaptation opposite star Dakota Johnson.
The joke here is sort of on Steve Buscemi, who doesn’t exactly leap to mind as the star of soapy erotic dramas. But you know what? Steve Buscemi is an awesome actor. I’d be a lot more interested to see ‘Fifty Shades of Gray’ with him than Jamie Dornan. But that might just be me.
Please enjoy the very entertaining ‘Fifty Shades of Buscemi,’ but be aware it contains a little NSFW imagery and language. (I mean, it’s ‘Fifty Shades’ here, people. It sort of has to.) The boring, non-Buscemi ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ opens this Friday.
