JESSE EISENBERG’S “THE END OF THE TOUR” IS EASY TO DISMISS – BUT DON’T

AG079454_06cut

The description of Jesse Eisenberg’s new movie is off-putting, to say the least. The film, “The End of the Tour,” is described as being about a Rolling Stone journalist following a successful author for the final days of his book tour in the Midwest in the winter. In other words, a prolonged conversation between an interviewer and his subject – and we’d never heard of either of them. But what a SURPRISE! Jesse Eisenberg is perfectly cast as the admiring Rolling Stone reporter and Jason Segal is a REVELATION as the quirky and sensitive author. It takes place in the mid-nineties and this movie perfectly captures a moment in time. It starts out as two smart guys talking and becomes unexpectedly touching as a fleeting friendship develops. That’s all we can say. This movie has to be seen to be appreciated.

  1. A film about men, by men. Just the way I like it, like it, lick it.

  2. Yup… A movie with a dorky guy —about a sensitive dorky guy…. should make a fortune..!

  3. please remember most of his fans are just ordinary people like you & me.

  4. True, but if you want to see the look of a true Shylock, get a side view of Paula Abdul as she ages, quite a honker!

    Small minded little imposter, so jealous of Strom and the 1%. Wants to be famous too, but just doesn’t know how!
