Lowell Duluth | Hungary (for now) | 05/09/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Simply, Choose Me is an edgily romantic, iconic, moodily hilarious, foolhardy movie of a movie by one of the true heirs of Michael Powell. Rudolph's use of colour, textures, the unpredictable, and a literate script make for a unique roundabout. Bujold is a treasure, Warren should be far better-known, and Carradine - well, my favourite line in the movie:
'No, I'm the same. The town's different.'
Love at large, indeed.
Rudolph doesn't always get it spot-on, but this and Trouble in Mind and Equinox is 3 movies better than some directors of greater renown.
Choose it!"
A Quirky Ode To Sexual Liberation (And Romance!)
Timothy Dougal | Madison, Wi United States | 09/11/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"'Choose Me' is an odd little movie, set in a stylized (and stylish), totally libidinous after hours kind of twilight, even though some scenes take place in the day. The onscreen music is after hours jazz, and the soundtrack underneath uses songs of Teddy Pendergrass in sometimes shockingly effective, nearly subliminal ways. The complex plot, which I leave to others to describe, deals with the curious interface between love and lust in a witty, ironic way. Keith Carradine is compelling as the mysterious stranger who is all things to all the women in the film. Bujold does a nearly dual role as radio talk show host Nancy Love and her daytime alter ego, Ann. It's a lot of fun, as well as something to give you pause as you pursue your desires."
My absolute favorite movie!

"Choose Me....where do I begin. This movie oozes chemistry, passion, sexuality and how lives can change through a single encounter. I can easily watch it over and over. The music is exceptional, you truly feel the connection between the song lyrics and the characters. I saw another review that mentioned actors in their prime. Watch Leslie Ann Warrens movies now, she project that same sexual energy as she did then. I identify with each character. It was well written and truly captured the moment. I loved the clothes, the music, the writing. This movie is wonderful. I recommend it, and watch it constantly."
I adore this strange and complex but completely artistic mov

"Leslie Ann Warren! Gorgeous and so so so talented! She lights up the screen with her brilliant beautiful smile, and backs everything up with deep talent.
Genevieve Bujold, another beauty, in a different way, equally talented...the changes she goes through as she learns about her own sexuality.
Keith Carredine- Not just an interesting and photogenic face with a dancers body... he too has the acting skill to convey the complexity of his character and how despite how he screws so many things up, his character;s heart wants love...
THe other actors and actresses... Rae Dawn Chong... excellent.
It is a very "80's" style movie, stylistic and somewhat strange... characters intermingling and intersecting... a very unique story about people;s desires to connect.
I dont want to sit and rehash the plot line, suffice to say it is a terrific artistic movie and well worth watching more than once.
The music by the incredible Teddy Pendergrass so perfectly outlines the story too. His songs play a huge part of the movie's structure..."
