Adam Driver Movie Marathon

Now that I’m in the interim between graduating and starting my MFA, I decided to catch up on books, T.V. shows, and movies that I missed while wrestling with my thesis.

This movie is also fucking hilarious and cartoony, but it works. I demand all the gifs of Hugh Jackman in his mullet and khakis glaring daggers over his cubicle wall.

Rating: See the damn movie
