✨✨✨✨✨ "Danny definitely got shit, and Jean didn't even get shit. But I got your focus, and that fucked me up in a whole other way." #NoahBaumbach's #TheMeyorowitzStories is BRILLIANT. #DustinHoffman is the Jewish patriarch and no-longer-famous sculptor whose contemporaries are having retrospectives at MOMA, #EmmaThompson is his drunk fourth wife who counts Willem Dafoe as a former lover, #CandiceBergman is one of his ex-wives, #AdamSandler, #BenStiller and #ElizabethMarvel are the fucked-up adult children. It's a dry, anguished - "I could smash up every car in this parking lot and burn the hospital down and it wouldn't unfuck me up. You guys will never understand what it's like to be me a in this family." Delivered in a monotone.../ "Maybe I need to believe my Dad is a genius because I don't want his life to be worthless. And... if he isn't a great artist, that means he was just a prick" - and yet very funny New York comedy. And it's on Netflix! You don't even have to go to a cinema. Which is fortunate given that it's only playing at the Curzon Bloomsbury. Sometimes, I 💛 #Netflix.... ✨✨✨✨✨.
