Since 2009’s Adventureland, it seems like Jesse Eisenberg has just been playing variations of the same character. His characters are usually socially awkward and stutters a lot as he navigates uncomfortable situations. In the beginning of The Art of Self-Defense, it looks like there is just going to be more of the same, but as the movie goes on, it becomes obvious that there is more going on with this character than it originally seems.
To continue what I started on Tuesday, I’m going to be taking a look at Never Let Me Go and The Social Network. Apart from Spider-Man, The Social Network is what officially put Andrew Garfield on the map for mainstream audiences, and it was deserved. Never Let Me Go is a beautiful movie that almost seems like a long episode of Black Mirror.
