Audience Reviews for Modern Romance

    This is probably one of the few examinations of a toxic relationship that doesn't involve physical violence of any kind. The film is uncomfortable from start to finish as what at first seems to be a neurotic neediness in the central character slowly becomes an obsessive narcissism. I respect the hell out of Brooks for casting himself as such a unlikable person.

    Shows how jealousy can ruin relationships and cause unneeded stress with whoever involved.
