'The End of the Tour' is entirely made up of a series of conversations that feel so honestly true to life. Part of that is due to a great portion of the dialogue already existing in audio format from the real men being portrayed.

The emotions brought about from their conflicts and comroadarie are nicely understated. Segel and Eisenberg easily disappear into their roles right from scene one. They give two of the best performances seen all year.
