Filmspotting’s review published on Letterboxd:
I'm all in on this like Stiller's character committing to a hipster fedora. No Noah Baumbach movie has made me laugh so much – then again, no Noah Baumbach movie has made me laugh much, and when I did, I was usually laughing at characters more than laughing with them. There's a generosity to YOUNG, an uncynical, relatable longing to connect – and to simply be better – that underlies the comedy. FRANCES HA'S black-and-white aside, I've also never reacted much to Baumbach's visual style (or lack thereof). But the cinematography and editing here heighten, not merely capture, the humor and dramatic tension.
