    film review—Greenberg

    Sometimes a film takes time to sink in. I didn’t dislike Greenberg while I was watching it—although its central character did get on my nerves a bit.

One night after leaving a local bar, Mark Hogancamp, an outgoing but troubled artist, was attacked by five men and beaten to within an inch of his life. The resulting brain damage left him unable to draw and deeply afraid of the outside world.
