Entitlement is also an issue in Noah Baumbach's wonderfully acidic While We're Young, which captures a pair of Gen-Xers, Josh and Cornelia (Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts), at a crisis point.

It's the time of year when critics release their lists of the year's best films. It feels like a competitive sport -- or a provocation, which all of these lists are, by nature. As in: "This is my list of the best films. If you don't agree, you're wrong."

When I see two kids who are as obviously meant for each other as Frances Halladay and Llewyn Davis, I just have to speak up. Sure, there are obstacles to this relationship. But if any city could make it happen, New York is the place.

As the credits rolled over the last frame, I had these chills. Maybe it was Gerwig, evolving from OG mumblecore actress to Oscar front runner. Maybe it was the mentioned spec script for Gremlins 3. Maybe it was the Bowie. But probably, it's because I'm still trying to figure my own shit out.

ReThink Review: Frances Ha -- Growing Apart and Growing Up

If you haven't heard of Greta Gerwig, I think you'll be hearing a lot more about her very soon. She's the star and co-writer of Noah Baumbach's latest film Frances Ha, and she gives a performance so honest and relatable that directors will be scrambling to get Gerwig in their films.

Movie Review: Frances Ha

Marshall Fine | Posted 07.14.2013 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

Never a filmmaker for whom story seemed particularly important, Baumbach collaborated here with his star, Greta Gerwig, for what feels like an amorphous and fragmentary story of a delusional young woman who doesn't seem to want to grow up.

When Movies Aren't Audience-Friendly

You know what an audience-friendly film is. It tells a story that engages you about characters you can like and root for. Yet those films -- movies that seek to tell a story that uplifts or inspires -- often get short shrift from critics for that reason alone.

Toronto Diary: From Golden Abs to the Wit of Noah Baumbach

I'm sure Baumbach must hate all the comparisons to Girls. Sure, there's overlap -- basically Frances and friends are the same privileged-but-broke whites from good colleges -- but a few years older, so being at loose ends ups the ante.
