Anger rages in Philip as he awaits the publication of his second novel. He feels pushed out of his adopted home city by the constant crowds and noise, a deteriorating relationship with his photographer girlfriend Ashley, and his own indifference to promoting the novel. When Philip's idol Ike Zimmerman offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, he finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favorite subject: himself.

Very smart movie. I liked the narrator voiceover. Such a unique & introspective independent film.

Not a feel good video.
Jason Schwartzman playing a jerk is too easy. The hard parts are the other actors trying to make you feel bad for having to being around him, they fail.

Hard to believe this is a recent release and that these good actor chose to participate.

A real stinker.

Not that characters need be likeable, but I should care about them...and I just didn't (with the exception of Ashley). There were some genuinely funny and heartbreaking bits, but most of the time I was bored. The camera-work was a little frustrating at times, darting around like a fly, and the narration was interesting but didn't happen often enough that it felt consistent. The character of Philip seemed like a Max (Rushmore) all grown up and having learned nothing. It felt longer that the hour and 49 minutes that it was, but I would recommend watching the deleted scenes, as they added some depth to the characters that was otherwise missing.
