Joe Gould’s Secret (Stanley Tucci – 2000) B

From the opening few minutes I was positive that I am going to love Joe Gould’s Secret. It’s set in 1950s New York and Stanley Tucci starts narrating about life and the real-life character Joe Gould. Unfortunately I was wrong. My initial gut reaction to the opening scene was not enough to allow me to enjoy this tale of Mr. Gould’s annoying persona. The saving grace of this movie is Stanley Tucci as Joe Mitchell who comes through as a fully realized, nuanced and subtle character.
