What an indelible character is Max Fischer. He's like a midlife crisis before he's even lost his virginity: all early promise that turns to nothing when the rubber meets the road. This film is wonderfully balanced and masterfully made. It's hilarious, inspiring, tragic by turns. It makes me laugh and cry and cheer and shake my head, sometimes all at once. The soundtrack is also amazing.
