    Childish story, Flat direction, boring acting, but somewhere between the emptiness and the Larry Davids socio schizophrenia he is introducing, formalized enjoyment can jump through the fireplace

    For better and worse, it feels like an extended version of a "Curb Your Enthusiasm" episode.

    It plays in many ways like a leisurely, bucolic version of "Curb," with a larger cast of characters and something like a "journey" for the main character.

    With its seaside setting and lighthearted fun, Clear History is a kind of pleasant, late-summer gazpacho, enjoyed to the sounds of Chicago and debates about whether there is a racial preference between black and white dwarves.
