A film that loses itself in the terrible clichés it puts on display. While I felt Baumbach tried to say something profound with this film, the ridiculous characters and their stupendous behavior make it very difficult to take any of it serious. The film works best as a comedy, sadly it isn't trying very hard to be funny.

Sometimes it's nice to see a director and actors having fun while making a movie, but when the movie itself isn't to your liking, it quickly becomes an extra nuisance. I didn't think White Noise was a big success, Baumbach and his two principal actors clearly felt differently when shooting it.

A family of colorful figures faces the mundane challenges of everyday life while being overwhelmed by whatever the world throws at them. Jack is the most knowledgeable professor when it comes to Hitler, his wife is secretly partaking in an odd scientific experiment and when his family has to flee from a toxic disaster, shit hits the fan.

Driver and Gerwig are pretty cringe-worthy, Baumbach is no Wes Anderson and the bland comedy doesn't properly hide the skin-deep social critique. I also don't understand why this was stretched way beyond the 2-hour mark. A pretty disappointing film, in the hands of a more capable crew this could've been fun though.

Marriage Story

2019 / 136m - USA
Marriage Story poster

A pretty tired divorce narrative that isn't helped by actor who are trying very hard to act and a director who supposedly fell asleep halfway through. The simplistic people vs the system finger waving didn't really help the film forward either. There are a few pleasant scenes, but hardly enough to support a 132-minute film.
