    While We're Young 2014

    ★★★ Watched 11 Apr, 2015

    This is the kind of film you enjoy in the moment and can see Baumbach's stamp amidst all of the small changes that make it more approachable, but it slowly falls apart the more you think about it. I'm not quite sure what they were going for with that third act.

    David Robert Mitchell's direction helps this stand out amongst the crowd but Disasterpeace's score is what really makes it sing.

    ★½ Watched 10 Nov, 2014

    So white washed and sterile that it makes the "culture clash" of San Francisco and Tokyo completely superficial. Its vapid tackling of familial loss is made all the more frustrating due to its blank cast of rote characters. Then a big superhero battle, ripped straight out of Marvel's already dull recent output, happens. Don't bother.

    As funny, heartfelt, and melancholic as I'd hoped. Don Hertzfeldt at his best.
