Directed by Rick Alverson
Starring: Tim Heidecker, James Murphy
and Eric Wareheim.
Its audience may be self-selective in the extreme, but few films
have better articulated the limits of irony as a force field against the world.
– A.V. CLUB
It’s a meaty film, filled with ideas unobscured by any generic narrative string,
a move that shows not only the confidence of the director but his respect of the audience.
This is one that’ll have people talking.
Alverson just wants people to care, even if that subsequent emotion
takes on the form of hate, and as such, “The Comedy” has my begrudging respect.
