The Night Listener

it'd be tough to follow up RV with something worse then RV, i believe that is something we can all agree on. the night listener, robin williams most recent project, is a film that resembles the J.T. Leroy saga. author writes memoir of abused childhood, author is revered, public finds out that author doesnt exist, public then finds out that author is someone else completely. This is basically the night listener. Robin Williams plays a gay radio show host who becomes friends with the young author after reading his memoirs, things start to seem a little fishy so williams investigates, finally finding out that the author is actually the authors step mom. There are some scenes in this movie that are very well constructed, i was genuinely freaked out a few times (I caught myself wanting to say "look behind you!" and "don't go in there man!"). all in all this was a good 82 minute effort.
