The End of the TourDVD - 2015
"It's a movie that makes thoughtful drama out of the essential insanity of celebrity journalism, wherein a star proclaims humility while a scribbler promises idolatry."--Toronto Star
"The End of the Tour is so effective because it's far too smart to engage in ominous foreshadowing."--Chicago Sun-Times
"Made with love and skill, the movie deserves to be seen."--Boston Globe
"An illuminating meditation on art and life with Jason Segel giving the performance of his career, potently catching the internal conflicts of celebrated novelist David Foster Wallace."--Rolling Stone

"I think that writing books is a little like raising children, you know? You have to be careful. It's okay to take pride in the work, but I think it's bad for someone to want the glory to reflect back on you."
"Well, I think being shy basically means being self-absored to the extent that it makes it difficult to be around other people."
"So as the Internet grows in the next ten, fifteen years, and virtual reality pornography becomes a reality, we're gonna have to develop some real machinery inside our guts to turn off pure, unalloyed pleasure. Or -- I don't know about you -- I'm gonna have to leave the planet. Because the technology is just gonna get better and better, and it's gonna get easier and easier and more and more convenient and more and more pleasurable to sit alone with images on a screen, given to us by people who do not love us, but want our money. And that's fine in low doses, but if it's the basic main staple of your diet, you're gonna die."
"Okay, you can make me look like a real d**k, if you print this."
"No, I'm not going to, but, if you can, speak into the mike."
(discussing existential anxiety)
"It may be in the old days what was known as a spiritual crisis: feeling as though every axiom in your life turned out to be false and there was actually nothing. And that you were nothing. And that it's all a delusion and you're so much better than everybody because you can see how this is just a delusion, and you're so much worse because you can't f**king function."
