Larry Karaszewski on

Modern Romance

Released 1981
Distributor Columbia Pictures

Albert Brooks’s 1981 comedy about the self-inflicted wounds of a self-absorbed moviemaker lacks the absurdist observations of his previous film – 1979’s Real Life – but it mines a deeper, more acerbic humor from Brooks’s roller-coaster romance with an extraordinarily patient bank executive played by Kathryn Harrold.
