It's hard to feel sorry for a guy who banked millions for not hosting "The Tonight Show" anymore, but it's also fascinating to see a man this compulsively driven to get back in front of people and tell jokes, to hear the laughter, to soak in the applause.
While a lot of geography is covered, as a concert film, Conan O'Brien Can't Stop is decidedly thin entertainment.
It's ... entertaining, not to mention revealing about the emotional toll exacted upon people who, in O'Brien's words, "feed their bone marrow to the wood chipper that is television."
Just as he promised, amazing things happen.
Meta-irony can get a guy who's still grinding an ax only so far.
Forget talk shows; Coco should keep touring and making films like this.
It's rather stunning, but sometime down the line, our beloved Conan O'Brien ... he turned into Larry Sanders.
The film captures the exhaustive healing process he had to endure to emerge (relatively) cleansed.
...depicts a fiercely talented performer who has created...a temple to his own cult. While the resulting spectacle may be distasteful in its egotism and indulgence, there's no doubting the drive and devotion of a man for whom the world truly is a stage.
The movie is pretty standard behind-the-scenes fare most of the time, but kudos to O'Brien for allowing the filmmakers to portray him in a light that's not always flattering.
An alternately revealing and concealing vanity project that gives O'Brien a chance to vent his anger, ventilate his underlings (with his rapier wit) and play rock star alongside such celebrity enablers as Eddie Vedder and Jack White.
...a compact, compelling study of the classic manic comic personality in full overdrive.
An interesting look into the celebrity's life and his comeback from being kicked off TV. It isn't as funny as I had hoped, but it stays interesting and keeps your attention throughout.
Conan said it best when speaking about his tour: this is raw Conan. He swears like a f-ing sailor and berates his s---ty staff all g-- damn day. Wink!
If I could show up not do my job and get paid 30 million dollars I wouldn't still be complaining about it years later. Quit crying you big girl.
While it didn't blow me away, it was great to see behind the scenes look at how Conan operates.
