Clear History - G. Mottola 2013

This TV film from HBO contains a several actors I feel I don't see enough of - Larry David, Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton - plus a few more I do pretty well without (Eva Mendes, Liev Schreiber, Kate Hudson).

The script is co-written by David and very representative of his distinctive style; he plays his routine garrulous old man in a story about self-delusion, revenge for real and imagined sleights, blowing up houses, dating women much younger than himself, all the while upsetting people every time he opens his mouth.

Apart from the fact that Larry David is a lot more offensive but just as talkative as Woody Allen, this feels very close to a Woody-film; one of the better.
