Modern Romance (1981)

Albert Brooks, as the film’s writer, director, and star, trumps all comers in this definitive portrait of a narcissistic schlemiel in the throes of post-breakup agony. Laser-like in its social surgery and brutally funny (all at Brooks’s own expense, of course—he embodies every man at his most pathetic and oblivious).
