Geoffrey Rush is wry, sly, and deviously funny in A Little Bit of Soul, writer-director Peter Duncan's follow-up to his offbeat black comedy Children of the Revolution. Rush plays the smooth-talking Australian finance minister (who, as it turns out, is confounded by the simplest economic theory) and husband of a philanthropist (Heather Mitchell). They play host to a pair of rival scientists and former lovers (David Wenham and Mansfield Park's Frances O'Connor) competing for the same grant. Sound like the weekend from hell? That should come as no surprise, for the hosts just happen to be Satanists. Well, it's really more of a hobby, they insist, but when a mysterious third guest paints the bathroom with her blood in a supposed suicide attempt, suspicions bubble to the surface. Duncan has a light touch with actors and a deft way with underplayed comedy, but he lets his script wander into absurdity, and his characters follow. The sardonic humor transforms into a series of outrageous gags in which Rush comes unleashed with manic energy, but while scenes entertain on their own terms, the story never recovers from the cartoonish turn. The upbeat score features a wonderful collection of toe-tapping Louis Jordan tunes. --Sean Axmaker
