nicole’s review published on Letterboxd:
I would die for Adam Driver.
That being said, I can’t say it lived up to the hype for me. The last 5 minutes or so were lovely, even made me tear up a bit, but the rest of the film was just eh. The tonal shifts were awkward and there was a lack of harmony for me. I don’t know, maybe i’m missing something. Didn’t love the acting (Adam Driver is the exception.. see above) but I think the script is to blame. The character’s weren’t believable, if that’s even what Baumbach was going for... I honestly can’t tell.
Overall, the it felt like a good play. Take that as you will.
Blue Valentine was better, don’t @ me.
