Three sentence movie reviews: Greenberg

greenberg

Apparently Noah Baumbach wanted to make a novelistic movie, to which I would say that if this movie was a novel, I would have wandered away in the first fifty pages.¬† The acting is good, but there was nothing about Roger Greenberg that made me root for him.* ¬†Greta Gerwig was fine though I’m beginning to wonder if I only loved her as Frances Ha, because she hasn’t rocked my boat in anything else.**

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home

*In contrast to Oscar Isaac’s Llewyn Davis, who I didn’t like but rooted for the entire time.
**What I’ve seen: Frances Ha, Lola Verses, Damsels in Distress.

  1. Oh, how funny, in light of the comment I made on your review of Damsels in Distress. I see that this is by the director who did The Squid and the Whale, so I’ll pass. I hated that movie.
