Cyrus : Movie Review

In Cyrus, a freakishly engrossing black comedy about excessively mothered men and the women who enable them, the excellent John C. Reilly plays John, a middle-aged editor who lives like a stalled graduate student in his cluttered Los Angeles cottage. That’s where his former wife and close friend, Jamie (Catherine Keener, all aglow as ever), finds him masturbating to loud music when she drops in to tell him she’s getting married again. Once he gets over his panic, John lapses into his customary low-grade depression, from which Jamie tries to rescue him by dragging him, along with her long-suffering fiancé (Matt Walsh), to a party. There, he will make an utter fool of himself and take a risk that will change his life for the better—and much, much worse.
