Here are my thoughts about films, life, and what not. If you don't like them I'll give your money back.

"Youth in Revolt" (2009)

30 November, 2010

"Youth in Revolt" , directed by Miguel Arteta, caught me off guard with how much I enjoyed it. This may be due to the fact that I heard a lot of negative reviews from friends and trusted critics when it was originally released. It finally made its way to the top of my Netflix queue Saturday and I had time to watch it Sunday afternoon. I laughed out loud at points, and thought that the dual personality was well done. Michael Cera plays a more nuanced George Michael (His seminal character from Arrested Development), and handles the Francois character with great aplomb.

I didn't plan to write any notes on this film so I didn't take any. All I have to say is that it was a good time and beautifully shot. Obviously the next step is to read the book, but it's kind of tainted because I'll be picture the main character as Michael Cera.
