Synopsis James Ponsoldt's magnificent THE END OF THE TOUR gives us two guys talking, and the effect is breathtaking.[T]he movie’s insights -- into professional envy, into fear of fraudulence, into the strange business of forging a friendship -- extend beyond the boundaries of its biographical roots. -- Grade: A-Segel and Eisenberg, who as movie stars have been in Wallace's position many times, have an intuitive understanding of how this relationship works, and they illuminate it in the moment, with specificity and clarity.3.5 stars out of 4 -- THE END OF THE TOUR lets us hang out with two different writers who strive rigorously to never completely let their guard down....Elevated by two extraordinary actors, an exhilarating gift.There will always be films about writers and writing, and this one is just about as good as it gets.It’s a profoundly moving story about a towering talent who seemed to feel too much and judge himself too harshly to stick around for long. What a shame. -- Grade: A-[D]irector James Ponsoldt’s cerebral road movie stands alone as a celebration of Wallace’s unique gifts and singular personality -- and the dance of wits between a good writer and a great one.Wallace becomes a character in his own right: a brilliant, compulsively engaging player in a pas de deux that touches on everything from creativity, ambivalence and competition to the unspoken rules that govern celebrity reporting at its most transactional.After the publication of his epic novel INFINITE JEST in 1996, author David Foster Wallace agreed to be accompanied on his book tour by Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky in what would become an exhaustive five-day conversation between the men that would leave them both enriched and altered by the experience. Lipsky would go on to write about the interview in the critically acclaimed best-selling book ALTHOUGH OF COURSE YOU END UP BECOMING YOURSELF. Screenwriter Lipsky and director James Ponsoldt recreate for the big screen many of the events and actual taped conversations from that marathon interview in this compelling drama.
