I liked this one a lot. Interesting to fuse a warning about unrestricted capitalism (?) with a set of protagonists who live an essential capitalist hero story. A little jumbled overall, I think, to make any of its points as emphatically as intended. But little moments of pathos - the renter in the empty subdivision stands out the most to me - and Carell's tortured performance, in particular, made for some good old-fashioned drama.
I definitely agree that it takes a few minutes to settle into the style. There was a lot of muttering in the theatre when I saw it, until people gradually caught onto the film's rhythms.
