    • Excerpt: Ruminating on everything from the digital evisceration of print media (and print media’s return) to the global rise of the far right, Assayas and his cast keep us entertained as their characters struggle to present their idealized selves in a post-truth world.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: The Parisian elite sip red wine and debate literature and the digital revolution in a rambling series of salon dialogues. If plot walked into the room, the characters would offer a polite head nod, and then criticize it behind its back.

    • Excerpt: These pseudo intellectual Parisians present theses, state bias, and move on. It’s like Assayas wrote them with the same algorithms he says have replaced taste-making critics.

    • Excerpt: This is an Éric Rohmer movie for the digital age. And it wouldn’t be French, or in the Rohmer tradition, if it didn’t involve a healthy preoccupation with sex.
