The Art of Self-Defense 2019, hulu / Now On Hulu

7.0

Watch this if you like weird movies. And don’t be fooled by the first half, which serves just to set Jesse Eisenberg’s character and the monotone life he leads. It’s the calm before the storm, during which that character is attacked by a violent gang and decides to take self-defense classes in an unusual club. This is a movie about modern manhood and how it can lead to some pretty strange situations. Great performance from Eisenberg as usual.

I loved this movie, not because it was funny but I found it captivating.

This is a dark comedy, and Jesse Eisenberg takes it to the top. I love him even more as he finally expresses his masculinity, which is a wondrous thing for both men and women! That dog omg that cute little dog!!!

I have mixed feelings about this movie. The characters are meant to be funny but the story itself is not.
