The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) Directed by Noah Baumbach
I’ve seen a bazillion movies about scared families in hospitals but I’ve never seen that particular dynamic portrayed. It was validating. I RECOGNIZED it. Each actor is superb, and both Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller have a couple of career-best moments, but it’s the group dynamic that is the special thing here. Family: messy, painful, funny. I loved this movie.

Baumbach builds mighty misunderstandings into overlapping streams of clashing dialogue in which sincere declarations, offhanded jokes, deep confessions, and subtle insults go equally overlooked in the torrents of ego. He also develops an extraordinarily fine grain of details, from the irritations of New York parking (recalled from “The Squid and the Whale”) and the scant merits of a home-cooked seafood dish to embarrassments of attire and the scammy tax manipulations of an art purchaser.

In one respect, it feels like a throwback to the American comedies of the 1930s and ‘40s. The dialogue sounds orchestrated—Baumbach paces and modulates his characters’ speech with such care that the conversations play out like pieces of music… There’s a breathless quality to much of the patter; you’re often not sure until after a scene ends whether certain lines were meant to make you laugh or cry.
