We saw End of the Tour Saturday night. Jason Segel as David Foster Wallace, and Jesse Eisenberg as the reporter interviewing him.

Segel gives a great performance, far from his usual Sarah Marshall/HIMYM kind of role. Jesse Eisenberg gives his usual weaselly-little-creep performance.

I'm not sure if I liked it or not. Wallace spends so much time in his own head, wrapped around his axle, it's a bit frustrating. I want to know more about him, and more about Infinite Jest (surprisingly, they don't talk at all about what the novel is about)...but maybe not so much as to invest in 1000 pages.
