Armond White disses Noah Baumbach's new movie. His reviews make me want to see Get Hard and While We Were Young.
Baumbach lacks self-awareness the same way his solipsistic characters do. This is his eighth film that demonstrates the apparently incurable egotism of New York elites who think their self-centered hang-ups are of world importance.
Its true subject — egotistical jealousy — hides inside the characters’ unconfessed neediness and competition, a particular New York condition, frequently glorified as “neurotic.”
From what I've seen, the same could be said of Girls.
