7 Chinese Brothers

March 20, 2014

The title of this immersion in the anarchistic and often self-defeating work life of Larry, played by Jason Schwartzman, seems to be based on a Chinese children’s fable, ‘5 Chinese Brothers’, in which the brothers save one of their number by confounding an executioner with their super-human powers. But no one can save Larry, especially from himself.
