Fresh out of NYU film school, Blitstein films what he knows: His tale of a young filmmaker's writer's block gleefully incorporates all manner of antic styles, from Mack Sennett-style double-takes to Felliniesque black-and-white pantomime.

A movie where the only conception of life seems to come from other movies makes for no kind of movie at all.

The film ends up feeling like even creative inspiration and apotheosis is hopeless because all that can ever emerge from these characters is derivative of some earlier work. When you look at it this way, Chirp can't help seeming like a time capsule...

The line between being pretentious and calling it out is awfully thin ... continually points a finger at obnoxious New York behavior while simultaneously perpetuating it.

You would think that by now budding filmmakers would have given up on making a Woody Allen movie.

This sort of thing was indulgent enough the first time around; transplanted to the mumblecore milieu, it's intolerable.
