Too pretentious to be genuine

Nobody talks like this in the middle of a heated argument, especially with alcohol involved. The passion was there in the physical acting, but the verbose lines felt entirely too premeditated and rehearsed to be delivered organically as they would be in a spontaneous lover's spat. They just take turns spouting off eloquently composed diatribe. Cinematography is the one redeeming quality. Beyond that, I couldn't get past the toxicity of their psychological jabs to find the takeaway of this abusive character study with no resolution. In summation: TLDR; Relationships are messy and Sam Levinson's grudge for Katie Walsh runs deep.

unjustified

I've to say i agree with other reviewers' stances that once you've seen the first 30 minutes, you've seen it all. it was exhausting to watch an hour and 40 minute long argument, especially one that went around in circles and repeated itself several times. a contributing factor to this is the characters who, despite being played by good, likeable actors, are both completely insufferable. zendaya gives a pretty good performance, but i can't say the same about jdw. he wasn't awful but it almost felt like he was acting for stage instead of screen. and the mac and cheese scene??? terrible. although i think the director is more to blame for that one, speaking of whom... i have to say i think on the part of levinson this film is incredibly self indulgent. you can tell he thought he was making an insightful and emotional drama, but as i wrote before, there is nothing new to be found in this film after the first half hour. unless you love watching people argue for way longer than you need to, you can skip this one.

Insanely Pretentious

This movie was exactly what i was expecting when i saw the poster. It is insanely pretentious that it is sometimes cringeworthy. I think this is an interesting concept, a film consisting of just two people and showing their relationship over the course of a single night. After watching i think it might work better as a short film as by the end of its run time it seemed like it just had nothing else to say and felt like the same arguments over and over again. The male character is a film maker that thinks he is the best film maker since slice bread and the whole time i just couldn't stop thinking that he was just a mouth piece for the director. His words felt like the directors. It was like film school pretentiousness with him constantly talking about certain directors and certain moves and not understanding them like Citizen Kane. The whole shooting on film and in black and white was just done to be artsy in my eyes. Maybe it added something a little different to it but i thought it made this gorgeous house look terrible because the film was so noisy resulting in it being so grainy. The construction of some shots were really nice. The acting was ok. Zendaya was pretty good but the male lead was a little over the top for me. The script was another issue. It was so over written. It didn't feel like people talking, it felt like words of a page. The plot was sort of infuriating. It repeated its self so much. The worst part of the movie though was the plot regarding the critic. It was wrote from such a bitter place. The director obviously had a bad review from the LA Times probably the review for Assassination Nation. It was so awkward to watch. It is brought up so much and so often. Really really bad. I would say you could definitely skip it.
