Review: While We're Young
An enjoyable reflection on aging and the awkward pursuit of relevance.mpaa rating:R (For language.)Genre:ComedyDirected By: Noah BaumbachRun Time: 1 hour 37 minutes Cast: Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Amanda Seyfried, Adam DriverTheatre Release:March 27, 2015 by A24In our culture of cool, we worship the new, the fresh, and (above all) the young. So balancing the practicalities of aging with what relevance requires can be a real drag.That’s the dilemma for Josh (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia (Naomi Watts), the fortysomething couple at the center of Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young. Childless at a time when all of their couple friends are having babies, Josh and Cornelia forge a new friendship with a twentysomething pair of Brooklyn hipster royalty: Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfriend). Though Josh and Cornelia are themselves aging hipsters (Josh is a documentary filmmaker who listens to Wilco, loves Godard, and likes to discuss Ricoeur’s “hermeneutics of suspicion”), they’re clearly hungry for their newfound friends to bring them up to speed on all things cool.Laughs ensue. The film’s fast-paced first half gives us gag after gag of the older couple trying to keep up with the younger couple’s trendy way of life. Jamie and Darby are the epitome of artisan, small-batch, analog Brooklynites. They raise chickens, build everything by hand, wear thrift store clothes and ride fixed gear bikes (without helmets). Darby has an artisanal ice cream business where she makes flavors like “avocado almond milk sorbet.”Despite suffering from arthritis and shin splints, Josh and Cornelia join the young couple for hip hop dance classes, syncretistic spiritual retreats, and “street beach” parties in Bushwick. They’re fascinated and energized by the young couple’s apparent passion for life and seemingly authentic disregard for the rat race.One of the most hilariously accurate sequences shows ...Continue reading...
Review: White God
Visually surreal but thematically muddled, this festival favorite doesn't quite live up to its hype. mpaa rating:R (For violent content including bloody images, and language.)Genre:DramaDirected By: Korn√©l Mundrucz√≥Run Time: 2 hours 1 minute Cast: Zs√≥fia Psotta, S√°ndor Zs√≥t√©r, Lili Horv√°th, Szabolcs Thur√≥czyTheatre Release:March 27, 2015 by Magnolia PicturesKornel Mundruczů’s White God ("Fehťr isten") is the sort of film critics love to overpraise: we know, deep down, that most anyone who takes the time and effort to see it will probably be predisposed to appreciate it. Plus, the increasing length of time between when foreign language films play on the festival circuit and when, if ever, they are made available for mass audiences, also means that barring some sort of Twitter or Letterboxd trolling, critics are shielded from pushback against elevated encomiums.Critical grade inflation can have its down side, though. Increasingly, when I work my way around to a highly buzzed film that I missed on the festival circuit, I find myself thinking, “That was nice, but . . . ” Films I might have liked more if I’d approached them with modest expectations end up getting punished for not being great, transformative, or overwhelming.White God is none of those things, but it’s not a poor movie. A genre-mashing tale that mixes elements of Planet of the Apes, Lassie Come Home, The Birds, The Great Escape, and Heart of Darkness, the film is brimming with interesting ideas and never far from a powerful image.Thirteen year-old Lili and her dog Hagen are dropped off with her father so that her mom and stepdad can attend an academic conference. Dad doesn’t want to pay a fee to keep an unregistered pet in his apartment, so he forces Lili to choose: Hagen can be turned in to animal control, where he will most likely get put down, or he can be released on the street to fend for himself.Lili chooses life—or at least the slim chance of it—over a humane death, and then she plays hooky from band practice to search for her ...Continue reading...
