As a study of stasis and of people conscious of not living the lives they had imagined for themselves, the picture offers a bracing undertow of seriousness beneath the deceptively casual, dramatically offhand surface.

A film of powerful, memorable moments -- some striking dialogue, some great performances, a handful of beautifully played, bracingly discomfiting love scenes -- in search of a structure and, perhaps, a soul.

Noah Baumbach again investigates psychologically screwed-up people, although this time with much less comedic impact.

Stiller is expert at playing self-indulgent types unaware of their boorishness, and Greenberg is no exception.

What saves it, however, is Gerwig. The love story ain't credible, but her performance is, perfectly capturing a young woman who doesn't lack confidence so much as a sense of self.

The indignities of modern life that Greenberg can't bear are peculiarly American. And so is this thoughtful and hilarious film, though some might feel its arty moments and lack of action seem more European.

Greenberg is a fantastically complex part to play, but Stiller's performance is superbly nuanced, convincing and brave.

This is a sunny, prosperous movie, full of bright light and swimming pools, casual hospitality and people going out to dinner; but its problems are not external villains. It's the internal demons which menace.
