Allan Arkush on

High Fidelity

Released 2000
Distributor Buena Vista Pictures

Any geek who understands movies or music more than they do romance will see themselves in Stephen Frears’ wonderfully smart anti-rom-com, High Fidelity. The head geek is played by John Cusack who holds court in his record store surrounded by the one thing he has an uncomplicated relationship with: records. He’s also surrounded by a terrific supporting cast including Jack Black, Todd Louiso and a cameo from some rock n’ roller named Bruce.

About Allan Arkush

A record collector and film buff from his early days, Allan Arkush brought his two loves together in directing the cult classic Rock ‘n’ Roll High School. Allan’s day job is directing and executive producing television series like Heroes, The Client List and Crossing Jordan.  He has also directed episodes of Ally McBeal, Moonlighting and many other tv series as well as the mini-series, The Temptations, for which he won an Emmy. He wishes that someone would release his 1997 Showtime movie Elvis Meets Nixon on DVD.
