Sort of Synecdoche Night Live. At times suggests a high-risk project nobly attempted. At others, everyone looks lost.
So much to juggle: narcissism, mental illness, media critique, codependent friendship, workplace satire, externalized subjectivity, money. Too much, probably. But you can't say it isn't different.
