The Meyerowitz Stories ★★★★½

NYFF55 FILM #4:

It's great to see you acting again, Adam Sandler. Please do more movies like this. The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) is extremely funny while also being a great, authentic look at a dysfunctional family. Noah Baumbach does a terrific job delving deep into the regrets and frustrations of each character without ever making them too despicable (yo, Brad's Status). There's some editing choices in the third act that I find a bit questionable, but it didn't affect my thorough enjoyment of this film too much.
