Excellent acting combined with an intriguing plot unfortunately collide with two elements that really didn’t work for me: the sometimes overwhelming drum solo score and the simulated single take. Overall, it was more failed artsy than successful artsy. Although Emma Stone was mesmerizing* and I remembered why Edward Norton was my movie boyfriend for so many years.
Where watched: Hollywood Theater with Matt
