    Loved it. Sooooo funny, and it perfectly balances out the comedy with some really interesting family dynamics.

How much he respects the story he is telling, going deep into minutia that any other director would overlook, and 2. How much he wants this to not be just any other biopic. The initial montage was so creatively done, and the ending scene so much better than any letters on black screen could have done.
