Being Flynn Review

Paul Weitz’s Being Flynn is a tonally muddled and confused little movie, but ultimately an interesting one. It wants to be a dark and morally ambiguous slice of urban misery with a redemptive core, yet it never quite achieves that somewhat counterintuitive mash up. However, there are enough interesting ideas and a handful of solid performances (including a long awaited return to form for Robert DeNiro) that make it a hard movie to dislike.
