A lot of award contenders are being released now, so I want to give a little tip of the hat to my favorite release from earlier in the year.
You're gonna look at the trailer, see white and quirk, and automatically think the H-word. There's more going on here. Outside of what I personally took away from this film (adjusting life plans and expectations, figuring shit out), I thought it was well written, edited (Matt?), and shot beautifully. It feels very...French.
It's getting the Criterion treatment in November (if that means anything), so if it seems like something you would enjoy, check it out.
And here's a not overly interesting interview with Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig conducted during The New Yorker Festival.
There will be people who pull the crazy card, and no doubt there's a lot going on with him, but I find him to be extremely passionate, inspired, and because of that, inspiring. If you haven't watched the videos (I'm sure most have), check it out.
