Support the Girls, Andrew Bujalski, 2018

Almost everything I read about this is more about the author's views on capitalism than about Bujalski's competent, but bland film.


As an aside: Support the Girls is no more anti-capitalism than Computer Chess is anti-nerd or Results is anti-fitness. There's nothing in here to challenge even a hardcore laissez-faire, leave everything to the marketplace view. Not that I would want Bujalski to make an anti-capitalism film. Almost on the contrary: By using the obvious shittiness of Double Whammies as a dramaturgical shorthand, he takes the easy way out in almost every single scene. That being said, Haley Lu Richardson is very funny in this.
