Marriage Story

Marriage Story ★★½

Small brain: Directing a self-insert movie about chasing your deathly blonde feminine ideal around San Francisco.

Big brain: Directing a self-insert movie about directing the self-insert movie about the women you love and your projections upon them.

Expanding brain: Directing a series of self-insert movies about your own neurosis where you play the protagonist, always shipping yourself with attractive women.

Galaxy brain: Directing a self-insert movie where your character is a genius playwright who must construct a to-scale Borgesian replica of New York City so you can virtually correct your mistakes with women.

Transcendent brain: Directing a self-insert movie where the babysitter compliments your self-insert characters on their appearances, you're given a MacArthur Fellowship grant, and Scarlett Johansson divorces you for being too much of a creative genius.
