I Love You, Daddy Directed by Louis C.K.
Like Birdman, I Love You, Daddy gives us a flawed, middle-aged male genius professionally and personally antagonized by another difficult male creative—all while surrounded by un-creative harpies and dumb sluts who drag our man even further down. This is particularly offensive because CK’s “supporting actresses”—Edie Falco, Chloë Grace Moretz, Pamela Adlon, and Rose Byrne—are far more accomplished thespians than CK, whose dramatic range is limited to either sighing or twitching his chin.

The movie’s idea is fractal—it’s reflected perfectly in each of its details, which don’t just excuse but actually endorse sexual depredation as an artistic practice and as a way of life.
