A Futile & Stupid Gesture

2018 · 1hr 41min · UR
Metacritic · IMDb · Netflix

It’s a fun cast and the unique narrative devices are a fresh way to compress a lot of material…at first. Before long the cutesy fourth-wall stuff, along with the fact that everyone talks in one-liners at all times, creates so much ironic distance that nothing at all seems sincere. And it surprises me that Wain of all people would fall into the biopic trap of wedging a “Rosebud” awkwardly into this story.
