THE END OF THE TOUR (Movie Review)

***1/2 out of ****

My review of The End Of The Tour (click here), at Crosswalk.com, about journalist David Lipsky‘s days-long intimate interview with renowned author David Foster Wallace, on the final leg of Wallace’s 1996 book tour for his magnum opus “Infinite Jest” .

The End Of The Tour is ranked #20 (tie) in the Honorable Mention section of my Top Ten List for 2015.

An excerpt from my review:

“…an intellectually and philosophically invigorating experience…much of this tour’s conversation may sound like a downer, particularly as much of it is rooted in Wallace’s lifelong battle with depression, but what emerges from it – and him – is the hopeful longing that honesty will bring healing.”
