It caught my interest for a while but got monotonous, the ending was rather blah. I expected more to it

This film didn't hold my interest. Right from the beginning I wondered why they were together. I fast forwarded after she freaked out about him displaying sarcastic fun. The end scene was interesting camera work but, as with the rest of the film, too long and drawn out.

Was really looking forward to watch this one, as I am a big fan of Greta Gerwig's work. However, the camera was just too shakey to watch the entireity of the film.

Difficult to watch the reaccuring differences and incompatibilities with these two characters. I found myself wondering why they were trying against all odds. Some ways they are perfect for each other in their emotional discomfort and awkwardness. Somehow I was hoping they would overcome that and find bliss, but my advice would be to look elsewhere for it. Maybe in a year or three it would be possible?
