Punch-Drunk Love

Punch-Drunk Love ★★★★★

Barry Egan is a character with a lot of quirks, very specific mannerisms and hyper-fixations comprising his personality. We only ever see him in a suit and tie, but it is made clear that this too is an eccentricity, that he usually dresses more casually. This might be obvious, but it just occured to me that this particular detail is a reference to Adam Sandler in this more "dressed up" role than the rest of his less sophisticated filmography.
