    Disclosure: My brother wrote and directed this. And I’m in it as an extra in a handful of shots.

    Was supposed to premiere at Tribeca a few weeks ago but COVID-19 happened.

    I’ve seen the movie 12 times and it’s fucking great. The best thing my brother has been associated with and he’s been associated with a lot of cool things.

    Can’t wait for people to see this.

    I used to scream with laughter watching Louis C.K. standup specials but the humor doesn’t do it for me anymore. Doesn’t feel remotely clever like it used to. I can’t quite tell if it’s because of the controversy/scandal or if I’ve grown out of it or if it’s because I’m dead inside. Probably a combination of the three.
