    This has been fuel for much discussion about the camera’s gaze, but I think a philosophy discussion in the middle about orgasms justifies the potentially gratuitous sex scenes. Aside from that, it’s a pretty hypnotic romance with a lot of long scenes that don’t feel as long as they should, in a good way. By no means is it the quintessential love story it was made out to be in the marketing, but for what it is, it’s very well done.

    Perhaps 3 stars is a bit harsh, but I couldn’t help but view this as a boneless Annie Hall (same runtime down to the minute and the latter just manages to accomplish so much more). The best parts were when he’s actually doing his job as an editor, but the narrative connection in those scenes is so loose they might as well be another film.
