The Reviews for The End of the Tour (2015) 720p

Segel is brilliant, but the film itself is excruciatingly boringReviewed byluke-a-mcgowanVote: 4/10

At the start of The End of the Tour, David Lipsy's editor tells him there had better be a story. Unfortunately for us viewers, there is not. What we get is an aimless two hour snooze that plays like a less interesting version of Almost Famous and that not even a chameleonic and career best performance from Jason Segel can salvage.

The biggest (and actually, only) positive of the film is Jason Segel as David Foster Wallace. He's completely mesmerising when he first appears, this big, shy, self-conscious guy who feels far more uncomfortable in the spotlight than anyone suspects. Funnyman Segel vanishes into Wallace with a hundred tiny mannerisms and facial expressions to show the emotions that the real Wallace wore plainly across his face. We see a shade of disappointment cross his face when Lipsky pulls out his recording device, just as we see the moment he finally clicks with this Rolling Stone New Yorker as they discover a common trait. Even when putting his foot down to prevent Lipsky interviewing his parents, he seems uncomfortable with the authority he wields and you can almost hear the inner dialogue saying "can I get away with this?" When he does get angry over Lipsky flirting with his ex-girlfriend, its not theatrical but rather simple and with great authenticity - and Segel invokes in the audience the same reaction you'd get if it were from a friend whose approval meant the world to you. Segel's performance is one of great subtlety reminiscent of Mark Ruffalo's brilliant performance in Foxcatcher last year, and in a just world, Segel would be in the conversation for an Oscar nomination.

The rest of the film, however, is absolutely nothing to write home about. Jesse Eisenberg is great in some scenes, but in others he just comes across as a typical nasally Eisenberg character. He plays well with Segel when the two of them circle each other, jealous of the other's life, but they lack the connection shared by Fugit and Crudup in the infinitely better Almost Famous. Mickey Sumner's Becky and Mamie Gummer's Julie spark some interest, but perhaps that's just because the film was stale without them. The marvellous Joan Cusack is completely wasted in a nothing role.

The screenplay is filled with authentic dialogue, which is respectful but far from entertaining. This is a conversation movie where little actually happens, but when compared with something like Bridge of Spies or 12 Angry Men, its incredibly dry. Segel has one eloquent monologue towards the end of the film, but the fact that another one follows about 2 minutes later ruins its impact. The very limited story that actually does happen outside the dialogue is cliché ridden - such as the boss back home who says "get the story, don't be his friend".

James Ponsoldt's direction is serviceable - there's nothing remarkable about it. This is most noticeable when Lipsky drops Wallace's suicide watch into conversation. A more talented director would have crafted the scene to create a spike in tension, something broken between the two as Wallace's defensive barriers shoot up. Segel tries, but Eisenberg doesn't even blink about what he's just said and the scene quickly passes. The sound mixing team deserves a whack over the back of the head for allowing that hideous rubber-squelching sound of Lipsky's boots to so dominantly feature in the final scene, at one point drowning out Eisenberg's words. Danny Elfman's score is interesting - despite sounding like something out of a 1990-era Gameboy game looped endlessly, it has a peculiar beauty and felt somehow appropriate.

Ponsoldt's biggest failure however is that the film is utterly boring. Once we've we've become accustomed to Segel's brilliance as Wallace, the film becomes excruciating. Looking at the Wikipedia summary of the plot, the last fifty minutes is accurately summarised into about two or three sentences, and yet it somehow takes up fifty minutes. I had to multitask while I watched it, and my attention weaved in and out without missing anything.

Superb Writing, Superb InterpretationReviewed bywarevjensenVote: 9/10

Saw this film last weekend at its world premiere at Sundance. First of all, Donald Margulies' script was fantastic. I am slightly partial to good writing in film, so perhaps that's just what stood out to me, but the dialogue is incredibly well-written and natural and at least generally captures David Foster Wallace's fascinating way of talking. In essence (and in the best of ways), nothing really happens in this movie. There isn't a lot of high stakes drama, but that's exactly what makes it so compelling. It's like we as the audience get a glimpse into two men struggling with the same ideas about life, art, expression, addiction, culture, and depression.

Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg live up to the task of interpreting the script, helped along the way by director James Ponsoldt. The direction is simple, and the camera work is relatively basic throughout, giving the actors plenty of room to work with natural rhythm. Segel definitely impressed me, as this was the first dramatic role I've seen him in. While he didn't exactly capture some of Wallace's real-life mannerisms, I'm not sure if that was exactly the point of the film. He interpreted the script in a powerful way, and I think that that ended up working out quite well for the overall tone of the film. Eisenberg played his usual somewhat neurotic, slightly asshole- ish character very well, and I thought it fit the reporter role perfectly.

Overall, I would strongly recommend the film. 9/10

A thought provoking and emotional movieReviewed bynickweningerVote: 9/10

The End of The Tour was a beautifully done movie that will not be widely seen or even heard of. This movie doesn't have explosions, or side splitting humor, or sex, or anything that sells in Hollywood these days. What this movie does have is a well written plot with fantastic dialogue, a great story, wonderful performances, and thought provoking themes that make you ponder what is really important. The End of The Tour is about the five day interview between Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky, and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace (played by Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel). This five day interview took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace's epic 1,000 page novel called Infinite Jest. An interview that would later turn out to be never published and not really heard about until Wallace's 2008 suicide. During this interview, we get to see inside what it is like between the two men. Like I said earlier, this movie asks a lot of deeper questions that will leave you thinking. Questions like what is really important? If I am unhappy right now, will having what someone has change that? That even being famous and looked upon by the public doesn't really make you truly happy. We have seen this time and time again with famous celebrities that everyone thinks has it all together, give it all away because of depression and loneliness. This movie does an excellent job of portraying that. My only critique about this movie is that you never really get to know the character David who was doing the interview. They allude to deeper issues within him but never dive into them and expose them. Average Man Score: 8/10
