Excerpt: Ok, so I’m not sure what to think about Ben Stiller’s Greenberg. On the one hand I think it’s Stiller’s best film to date – but that’s not saying anything much when you realise that I don’t like any of his previous films.
Conclusion: Like a lot of human relationships Greenberg is complicated, infuriating, good-hearted, funny, often painful, and well worth the effort. A sad little movie but also a great one, lit by two astonishing central performances.
Excerpt: "Greenberg" is a guy who is annoying and weird, so aloof that you may question his mental state. At the beginning, you empathise with the man, but this doesn't last long, as you become bored by his antics and frustrated by his social encumbrance.
