Technically, Larry David may not be playing "Larry David" in Clear History
, but let's not kid ourselves. The made-for-HBO movie might as well be a Very Special Episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm
— it has the beats, the rhythms, the observational improvisation, the happy-go-lucky music, the lisps of J.B. Smoove and, of course, Larry David doing Larry David. The guy has the range of a Playskool walkie-talkie, but hey, can't that be enjoyable for a while?
