Ever since falling deeply in love with "Grosse Point Blank" as a twelve-year-old (followed swiftly by exposure to "Being John Malkovich" and "High Fidelity"), this writer has been firmly in the lifelong-fan-of-John Cusack camp. But being a Cusack fan has become deeply frustrating in recent years. His best performances ("Grace is Gone," "The Ice Harvest") go unsung, his paycheck roles get more and more depressing ("2012," "Hot Tub Time Machine") and his two most recent films, "Shanghai" and "The Factory" haven't been released at all, despite both filming way back in 2008. And that's without even mentioning his Twitter feed, a textbook example of why it's sometimes best to keep some distance from your heroes.
