Comedy. How would you feel if your best friend did something so incredibly stupid, and it made you doubt your friendship? Lines are drawn and old friends square off when one purchases a canvas that is, in essence, a pure white painting. As their arguments become less theoretical and more personal, they border on destroying their friendships. Newsweek called Reza “fiendishly clever” with “writing that sounds like a marriage of Moliere and Woody Allen.”
