Restless 2011 ★★★

This film toys with being insufferable. The similarities to such cinematic abortions like Garden State or Me, You, and Everyone we Know are hard to miss, but I think, in the end largely superficial. The reasons for the main characters' "quirks" are interesting and largely feel sincere. Much less a wish-fullfillment film than it appears, it turns out to be much more about grief and anger. The central pair complement each other well, and Hopper especially impresses in his scenes with his imaginary (?) friend the kamikaze pilot.
