  • The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    ★★★½

    You get what you expect from Baumbach - focus on peoples lives, their values and the fact, that no one is perfect. Although separated at first, each Meyerowitz is presented well enough, allowing us to create an image of the family and the relationships between them. It might be the typical American family, but it does not feel fake. At times it even feels relatable. The best of all are the small traits that most of the cast members execute well. Well enough to relat Great to see Dustin Hoffman and Adam Sandler in Baumbach’s work, but my vote goes to Elizabeth Marvel’s performance.

    Whether the script was a masterpiece or not, it was definitely made for a middle-aged audience. Boy, you should have heard the laughs from the lady sitting next to me. Unfortunately, I didn't find neither funny or believable.

    Rešetins acting surprised me from time to time, in a good way. Further in the film, the direction changed it where it didn't have to. Jubalts, on the other hand didn't seem like the person for the role.

    I had my hopes…

    HyperNormalisation

    ★★★★

    Hello Cyberspace. It just raises too many questions basically about everything that's around you right now. Will it change the way of looking at things? Possibly. Nevertheless, brilliant work by Adam Curtis and everyone who worked on putting the visual pieces together.

    Then again, these (nearly) 3hrs could be a part of hypernormalisation as well.. Subjective either way
