Mr. Jealousy

Mr. Jealousy ★★★★

"i think we all have our different ways of ruining things."

even mainstream Baumbach has Chris Eigeman playing a neurotic literary smarm monster named "Dashiell Frank." if only Eric Stoltz (his character, really) wasn't such a wet blanket. most of the things tied to the central rom-con conceit don't really hold water, but their underlying truths, and how sharply they're realized, go a long way... and Baumbach's formalism takes a nice, jaunty shape around the constraints of the genre. so 90s, so good.

also, is it just me or does the bottom half of the poster look like a swastika?
