When You Finish Saving the World

When You Finish Saving the World ★★★½

Jesse Eisenberg’s neurotic dramedy is an excruciatingly uncomfortable but ultimately moving debut that really took me by surprise. The film observes a certain kind of modern narcissism and entitlement rarely depicted on film today that I found incredibly fascinating—even though its ideas can feel jumbled and all over the place at times. I totally understand why some are hating this, but I found a lot to like here.
