The End of the Tour is NOT "Brilliant", NOT "Top Notch", NOT "Superb", NOT "Near-Perfect. It IS kind of boring.

The End of the Tour appears to have been filmed as cheaply and quickly as possible. The characters, dialog and story are dull and contrived but try to sound deep and intellectual. They're not. The writing seems to have nothing to say so they throw in some highbrow vocabulary to make the viewer feel like they're not smart enough to get it. "So he must've said something really smart, right?" Not really. If you pause the film and look up a word you quickly realize the statement was not enlightening or thought provoking at all (even though Jesse Eisenberg gave that subtle shake of the head as though he was just blown away).

So why did it get so much praise? It's a vehicle for pretentious posers to rave about on their quest to appear like social butterflies of the intellectual world.

It's truly shameful that society has sunk to this level. By that I mean that people we all know get their opinions from watching others on TV instead of using their own critical thinking skills. The talking heads on TV generally are speaking out opinions written for them by skewed producers or film industry marketers. This happens because the producer or critic doesn't have time to write a review on their own. They're looking for a quick way to be done with the work. Along comes the film marketeer who has taken the time to write a glowing review of the film they're trying to sell.

This happens of course on the political scene as well, when organizations like ALEC write legislation for senators to pass off as their own idea.

So if you decide to see this after all, do yourself the favor of making a note of who raved about it and stop taking advice from them. Also read up on the fine art of critical thinking. Calling out phonies and shaming them is the best thing we can do to change this trend of social corrosion.

"The End of the Tour" is all talk... but it is fairly interesting talk.Reviewed byCleveMan66Vote: 4/10

Heard of David Foster Wallace? No? How about David Lipsky? Me neither. That's probably because I watch so many movies. These two men are writers and "The End of the Tour" (R, 1:46) is about the latter interviewing the former. Like many Americans, for better or worse, the best way to get me to pay attention to writers is to put their work or their personal stories into a movie. Now the question is: Was it a movie worth making? Or, more to the point: Is it a movie that's worth your time and money? In 1996, Wallace (Jason Segel) was a college professor and author who had just published his magnum opus, "Infinite Jest". This book (officially categorized as an "encyclopedic novel") uses its story of a dystopian future to comment on, according to Wikipedia, "addiction and recovery, family relationships, entertainment and advertising, film theory, United States-Canada relations (as well as Quebec separatism), and tennis." The tome received glowing reviews from most critics, catching the attention of Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg), who was himself an author and a writer for "Rolling Stone" magazine. Encouraged by his girlfriend (Anna Chlumsky), Lipsky read the book, decided for himself the hype was justified, and convinced his editor (Ron Livingston) that a Wallace interview would make a good story.

Lipsky made the trip to Bloomington, Illinois, in order to meet Wallace and join him on the last leg of his book tour. The two men get to know each other as they drive around town, hang out at Wallace's modest rural home and then travel to Minneapolis and back. In Minneapolis, a publicist (Joan Cusack) picks up the two Davids at the airport, shows them around town and makes sure they get to Wallace's scheduled events. In the midst of the ongoing conversation between the two men, Lipsky observes Wallace at a book signing and during an NPR interview, along with getting to meet and hang out with Wallace's college girlfriend (Mickey Sumner) and a fan (Mamie Gummer) with whom Wallace had become friends. As their five days together progresses, Wallace and Lipsky get to know one another better? and they're not sure they like what they see in the other. The tensions between them calls into question how their relationship, the interview and the tour are ultimately going to end.

Wallace and Lipsky are two sides of the same coin. As Lipsky's inner monologue reveals to us, "He wants something better than he has. I want precisely what he has already." At this point in the lives of these two writers, Wallace is the more successful one, but also the more neurotic (part of his battle with depression), constantly expressing concern over how his statements will be perceived by the article's readers. He confesses to being "terrified" that his new-found fame will change him. "I have a real serious fear of being a certain way. I treasure my regular guy-ness", says Wallace, to which Lipsky responds, "You don't crack open a thousand-page book because you heard the author is a regular guy. You do it because he's brilliant." It seems that Wallace is the only one who doesn't realize (or can't accept) how special he is. "The more people think you're really great, the bigger the fear of being a fraud is," he reveals in one of many moments of raw honesty. It's a sentiment I think many successful people feel, but few would publicly admit. It's these kinds of insights that make this movie intriguing.

"The End of the Tour" is part biography and part character study, but not much else. It's basically two guys talking and would work well as a stage play? or a book. This movie represents the compilation of Lipsky's cassette tape recordings of his conversations with Wallace, which, along with his hand-written notes and personal recollections and insights make up his lauded 2010 book, "Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself". I feel that Eisenberg is miscast as a reporter and his performance is merely serviceable compared to Segel's who shows a range, intelligence, depth of feeling and a vulnerability that I've not previously seen from him. Segel reveals himself as a strong dramatic actor, as he simultaneously gives us a revealing glimpse into the life and mind of David Foster Wallace.

No, this movie isn't "exciting" in the usual big-screen sense, but that doesn't mean it isn't interesting. Of course, Wallace's fans are the most likely to be entertained by this film. The rest of us may enjoy Segel's performance, the well-written script and some insights into human nature, modern culture, fame and ambition, but I'm not sure this movie was the best platform for all that. Maybe I should just read Wallace's and Lipsky's books. The film about their time together gets a "C+".

An inspiring, often funny account of Wallace's book tour, with a standout performance from Jason Segel.Reviewed byjoey-ziemniakVote: 9/10

Prior to seeing this film, I had limited knowledge of David Foster Wallace and his works. After seeing the film, I wanted to learn more. The End of the Tour (dir. James Ponsoldt) is a very reflective film, highlighting author Wallace on the last stretch of his book tour for his novel Infinite Jest. Our entry point into this intriguing man is David Lipsky, a Rolling Stone reporter hired to do a piece on him in the late 1990s.

What little there is of plot is made up for in excellent characterization. The film is really all about existentialism, and thankfully it never leans towards pretentiousness. Rather there is an air of optimism about making your time on earth worthwhile. Wallace and Lipsky in a way represent two extremes of existentialism. Wallace is very relaxed, and takes his newfound celebrity with a grain of salt, while Lipsky is very Type-A, yet never brash or irritating. Lipsky has been trying to get his foot in the door as an author for a while now, while Wallace almost became famous overnight, and the film plays with the concept of "fame" in fun and unique ways. Through the film, Ponsoldt is able to explore these two extremes and find common ground between them, all while touching on the idea of fame and what it means to different people.

The script is outstanding, and hits all the right notes I touched on above. The dialogue between Lipsky and Wallace feels natural, nothing is forced. I wonder how much improvisation was done for the film, because the two seem like good friends from the moment they meet. There is a natural chemistry that draws these two characters together, and it's outstanding to watch on-screen. It's difficult to adapt a book like Lipsky's, which is mostly interviews and recording, as the book was published after Wallace's death in 2008. But screenwriter Donald Marguiles makes it work, and the result is an insightful, often hilarious film.

All this talk about chemistry would be a waste if it weren't for Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg as Wallace and Lipsky, respectively. Segel is a marvel as Wallace; it's a performance that doesn't demand much, yet Segel taps into all of Wallace's nuances and quirks. His delivery, cadence, and warmth almost makes it feel like you're talking to an old friend. It's a subtle performance that I hope is remembered come awards season. Eisenberg, too, is great. His reporter-type isn't very developed until the middle-end of the film, and he might come across as annoying for some. But he makes Lipsky tick as the curious interviewer wanting to learn more. He's driven by his desire to success, his want to make a successful piece for Rolling Stone, yet he ends up with a lot more.

The End of the Tour is a huge success. It isn't a very showy film, without much in the way of technical prowess, yet it's a talker. The realistic dialogue and blasé tone make the film feel like a 140 minute hang out with two good friends. Ponsoldt keeps a tight grip on the film's themes, never letting one overpower the film's true intentions. It's a wonderful ode to Wallace, and a funny one at that.
