Acclaimed and highly discussed filmmaker Neil LaBute has made himself a force to be reckoned with and a name to watch. With his true-to-life cynical and self-absorbed characters and all-too-true social themes, LaBute has firmly established himself as an unforgiving judge of the ugliest side of human nature.LaBute was originally a playwright. He attended Brigham Young University and took theater as his major. Many say that Pulitzer-Prize winner David Mamet was a strong influence on him. He chose to attack subjects that usually people nowadays insist are handled P.C. and showed the way that people don't want to handle them that way and talk amongst themselves. His piece entitled: "Filthy Talk for Troubled Times" which featured two guys just sitting around and making small talk and ridiculing homosexuals and their ways in a way not unlike the conversations in his In the Company of Men (1997) film. His play was not met with great reviews.After he graduated from the University of Kansas and New York University, he got a scholarship to London's Royal Court Theatre in England. He then went on to write and stage in the USA in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City. Then he got into cinema. He made his movies like his plays. Just characters talking and revealing how evil, scared, ignorant, wounded, dillusional and cynical they are.LaBute made his first major mark with the low-budget (and frighteningly realistic) cautionary fable, In the Company of Men (1997) about two male co-workers fed-up with the way women have taken over American society and it is no longer a man's world. The set out to find a vulnerable woman--someone looking for male attention and wine her, dine her--and dump her cruelly. Just to gain some dignity for their gender. Shot for ,000 under two weeks, the film won the Sundance Filmmaker's trophy, awards for LaBute's screenplay and Aaron Eckhart's thrilling performance as a heartless creep with ambition and cockiness to spare.His sophmore cinema effort, Your Friends & Neighbors (1998) was considerably less well-received (the "sophmore jinx," they call it). It was about a group of people connected by their relationships and when unhappy in them, they began to cheat on one another. Lovers, even friends. The movie got some strong reviews from some, but others just felt LaBute was more or less repeating himself. This time he had made an entire movie with nothing but villains, so why should we care or want these people to ever find happiness?Nurse Betty (2000) was LaBute's next directorial effort, a movie from a script he didn't write himself. A movie that starred The movie was a radical departure from LaBute's other work. It was about a sweet-natured waitress who had a love of soap opears and dreamed of being in the arms of her favorite star on that show, George McCord (Greg Kinnear). The movie received the Cannes Film Festival Best Screenplay trophy for its authors and a Golden Palm for LaBute's effort. Renee Zelweger was honored with a Golden Globe Award. LaBute had finally made a mainstream film - a damn good one. But he didn't spend ALL his time basking - he had put out several other things that year: A TV movie based on his "Bash" plays and another original work entitled Tumble (2000). None of which got wide recognition. In 2002, LaBute made himself noticed again with another less-caustic movie - a costume period piece called _Possession (2002/I)_ based on the legendary best-selling novel. Many could say it was about his love for early English culture. It starred the LaBute trademark Aaron Eckhart and Gwyneth Paltrow who specializes in having the most authentic sounding British accent around. Not a huge box-office success, but the film did have many strong admirers.In 2003, LaBute brought another adaptation - of his own work. Of the play he wrote and directed and had performed in England. He even brought his original cast (Paul Rudd, Rachel Weisz, Gretchen Mol and Fred Weller) back to appear in this one. It was entitled The Shape of Things (2003). About how a seductive art student named Evelyn takes Paul, a nerdy, insecure, out-of-shape guy... and begins molding him to look more and more desirable. Much to the confusion of his friends. He enjoys being desirable, but is unaware of where all this remodeling will lead as Evelyn gets more and more possessive and controlling. With pieces like In the Company of Men (1997) and Your Friends & Neighbors (1998) LaBute has proven that he has his hand on the very pulse of everyday people--not heroes and villains, just people. People who sound and behave often horribly. And you cringe all the more because you know and identify with them. But with Nurse Betty (2000) and _Possession (2002/I)_ LaBute has shown us that he has more than just one really incredibly note. He's no one-hit wonder. Here is a man whose entire body of work should be watched and studied by all.
