Like its lead character, eventually becomes so aggravating that it long overstays its welcome.

Tucci's slow-paced storytelling in "Big Night" was brave and worked beautifully, but the same technique in "Joe Gould's Secret" becomes annoying.

Joe Gould's Secret - slow, detailed, cautious, and ultimately kind of obtuse. Perhaps the problem is that this is the first movie he has directed that he hasn't written.
