14-02-2018 12:00:00 14-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Modern Romance | 9:15 PM With Albert Brooks, Kathryn Harrold, Bruno Kirby, George Kennedy, and James L. Brooks. Mint condition print courtesy of Sony Pictures. MODERN ROMANCE may be Albert Brooks's least-known film, but arguably it's his greatest – the most uncompromising and consistent, and, as restrained as it is on the surface, ultimately the most personal and unforgiving in its self-criticism. Brooks is Robert Cole, a film editor who breaks up with his girlfriend only to spend the rest of the movie desperately trying to erase his mistake, and even more desperately trying to contain his jealousy, neediness, and paranoia. Still the great comic portrait of male neurosis, and of emotional and psychological dysfunction, MODERN ROMANCE lays bare its protagonist's insecurities with an honesty few dramatic films have achieved. Only Brooks could make a deadpan comedy about a man who's very nearly psychotic. Painfully funny, with the emphasis on 'funny.' http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=279921 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
