Critics reviews

The most consistently funny of his narrative films, it is also, oddly, the most autobiographical. Of all his protagonists, The Girl is closest to Anderson’s reactive personality and sense of disconnection from the values and aspirations of his contemporaries. The White Busleads to the later work, but its humility and lyrical freedom are never subsequently approached in his fiction features.
