    I wasn't sure about Adam Driver as a performer until I watched this. Scarlett Johansson also looks pretty different from any other of her films. Both give strong and awards-worthy performances along with the rest of the cast. I loved how the anger escalates in the characters as things start to get complicated for both. This was my first Baumbach movie as director, so I'm glad I still have a lot more like this to watch!

It reminded me a lot of Enemy by the same director and Interstellar by Nolan. It was one of…

    This movie is like reading a book since you have to imagine how most of the characters look like. As many of you might have pointed out, this film lays between The Call (2013) and Locke (2013) but wins against both films by enhancing the excitement and intrigue at every moment.
    The unexpected plot-twists changes the way you look at the characters that never appear on screen and you can feel the satisfactions and frustrations our main character goes through.
