Shot in America European-style — 1.66:1 aspect ratio and in muted shades of black-and-white — director Mike Mills (Beginners, 20th Century Women) is clearly banking on Academy highbrows sweeping their votes in his direction. And who better to front such an ostentatious operation than Joaquin Phoenix in his first film since overacting translated to acclaim in Joker. Though nowhere near as flamboyant as his Cesar Romero retread, Phenix’s Johnny makes one question the quality of a performance in which every fingertip to the forehead or quick flit of the eyes is calculated to awe. Rather than disappearing inside his character, Phenix continually draws attention to himself. even when he's playing the part of a low key journalist travelling cross-country collecting interviews with teenagers. The 9-year-old nephew they saddle him with (Woody Norman) is insufferably precocious. One bright ray: it’s always a pleasure to watch Gaby Hoffman. This is a case of “don’t do as I say.” Seriously, don't take my word for it. Chances are your heart-tugs will far outpace my yawns. (2021) — Scott Marks
