Review: The End of the Tour

Excerpt:The End of the Tour is a powerful cautionary tale about fame, addiction, and all the evils inherent in the American Dream. The entire film is magnificently performance driven and that is why this film works so well. Director James Pondsoldt is no novice when it comes to bringing to life complex characters through conscientious and veracious exposition. In his previous films (Smashed and Spectacular Now), he was able to draw out career-making performances from now-stars Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller, and this film is no exception. Jason Segel showcases an intensity we had yet to see 31from him, embodying Wallace’s mannerisms and down-to-earth demeanor while still providing deep insight through conversations.”

RATING: ★★★★★★★★★ (9/10 stars)
