    ★★★½

    I don't think the Orny Adams stuff is very interesting and his jaded attitude sort of takes the air out the movie at times. Thankfully those bits are only sprinkled into what is largely a fascinating perspective of a comedian after they've already "made it." Sometimes just putting the camera on the table while Jerry and another nightclub vet chop it up about doing comedy—it's really cool.

    Shocked to find out that this actually happened in real life. I was so frustrated watching this... An aggravating lack of common sense. As "thrilling" as this is, it's agonizing to watch. I was tempted to fast-forward some scenes because they are so awful and seemed artificial; like there was no way real people would do this. But they did! It really fucking happened. Insane. Despite my not enjoying this as a viewing experience, I give it a lot of credit for getting such a huge reaction from me.

    Easily the most lyrically dense of Wes Anderson's movies. There is hardly a moment not worth dissecting for it's little bits of eccentric writing, set design, or performance ticks.

    I've never seen a Bogdanovich film before and I'm glad I started with this. It's a wonderful achievement; a solemn ode to the whimsical teenage years that fade away before we're ready.
