Somewhere between the noir and French film categories Motherless Brooklyn exists, and I truly enjoyed watching it. Norton gave a very interesting preformance in this film and if nothing else it's a great character study based on the choices he decided to go with to portray his character. The long scenic film backed by the low calming jazz music creates such a cool setting for the film and makes it so easy to get lost in the world that has been created by the film. It's understandable that this story might not appeal to everyone but I enjoyed it immensely.

One of the best films of the year! A comforting thrill ride with very well written dialogue, ambient soundtrack, and beautiful cinematography! I have been fan of Edward Norton for a long time and for good reason he's incredible in every scene. This is one of the best performances of Alec Baldwin and Willem Defoe. I respect people with Tourette syndrome being that I have ASD So I feel I relate to some extent. Last thing is I really hope Motherless Brooklyn gets nominated or better win something.
It's to the actors' great credit that this was bearable to watch. Poorly written and directed. There's no imagination in the way scenes play out.. The editing is sometimes strange during conversations, not showing you much needed reactions at key moments. Most characters are surprisingly one dimensional, despite the good acting. No one more so than the bad guy, played by Alec Baldwin, who is introduced in a strange way by avoiding to show his face (like Alec Baldwin is a bigger deal than he actually is?). I could go on about every detail that bothered me with this film, but in a nutshell it just feels like a passion project by an actor who is merely playing at writing and directing. It's great for Edward Norton that he got to make this film with all his friends, but less so for the audience.
