Directed by Noah Baumbach, GREENBERG also stars Rhys Ifans, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and mumblecore regular Mark Duplass.3 stars out of 5 -- [D]irector/writer Noah Baumbach moves the whole shebang along at a brisk pace....The humor and the pathos shine through.[T]he psychological geography of GREENBERG is terrain Baumbach has been mapping in increasingly sharp relief since his 1995 debut KICKING AND SCREAMING...GREENBERG scintillates with intelligence, razor's edge humor and austere empathy for its struggling lovers.[F]or those looking for realistic, complex characters coping with believable emotional hurtles, this is an unexpected gem.It is the funniest and saddest movie Mr. Baumbach has made so far, and also the riskiest.3 stars out of 4 -- Writer-director Noah Baumbach walks the fragile line between humor and heartbreak. Ben Stiller is exceptional...[T]here is something undeniably compelling about the surgical precision with which the filmmaker picks at neuroses that feel very personal.3.5 stars out of 4 -- This is an intriguing film, shifting directions, considering Greenberg's impossibility in one light and then another....What Ben Stiller does with the role is fascinating.3 stars out of 4 -- [A] quietly funny portrait of grown-ups growing up...4 stars out of 5 -- GREENBERG is a groundbreaking performance for Stiller....The film comes with a fine soundtrack from LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy.GREENBERG is a great spectacle of toxic emotional stasis...4 stars out of 5 -- Stiller expertly manages to eke out a small measure of sympathy from easily his most unpleasant character in years.
