"This is so nauseating with its predictably inane script and middlebrow moralizing, saying nothing of Spielberg's complete lack of self-awareness in his handling of this material, as AFlickering has aptly noted. I was by no means a fan of Spotlight, but at least there Singer's script wasn't fully engulfed by Spielberg's hamminess. "

"The importance of its subject matter being its sole justification for existing, Burns and co. craft an uninspired and insipid information dump masquerading as a film. The script, acting, etc. is serviceable, nothing more. "

"Nothing here -- from the script to titular character's psychology - feels earned. It's a cheap melodrama masquerading as high art. And Phillips lays his influences (e.g. Network, a host of Scorsese) on thick, leaving no room for originality or depth. Yes, Pheonix is typically fantastic, but he can only elevate, rather than save, this film. "

"Despite feeling very much like a play, this is more realistic and poignant than its influences (e.g. Kramer v. Kramer). That the story is autobiographical makes certain elements of the plot especially cringeworthy, but not enough to sour it completely. I've never been a fan of Baumbach, but this was decent. Be sure to see it with your spouse."
