Defending Your Life Regie Albert Brooks

Auszeichnungen & Festivals

American Comedy Awards

1992 | Nominiert: Funniest Actress in a Motion Picture (Leading Role)


In many respects, Defending Your Life is [Brooks’] most grandly scaled film. Though it ultimately centers on the moral status of nebbish anxiety and hollow social climbing, the film projects these personal reckonings against a backdrop that could almost be called Tati-esque.

I find most of Modern Romance too painfully accurate to laugh at, although the comic conception remains flawless; and even though the laughs come more readily in Brooks’s other pictures, the degree of emotional pain being seriously dealt with is well beyond Allen’s range. Nevertheless, I think Brooks is the best comic writer-director-actor we have in this country at the moment—certainly the most original and thoughtful, and the one who has the most to tell us about who we are.
