Hmmm ... it's Monday, prime trailer-posting day. They'd better post a trailer by noon California time or else ... or else ... I will be slightly upset!

I'm not a huge fan of Baumbach's stuff (WA collabs aside) post but this was okay. It held my interest, but not great. Like wilberfan said, great cast, and that's what held it for me. For all those reviewers saying this is next-level Sandler, though, even PDL aside, he's not doing anything here that he hasn't done before in, say, Reign Over Me. I did really like the very, very ending though - like an anti-Raiders ending. Not everything is forgotten. Overall, though, it's unremarkable and forgettable. Pure manifestation of what "a Netflix original" has come to mean.

Robert Sigl's Laurin (1989) on blu-ray from Bildstoerung (Germany), restored in 2K from the original 35mm negative



Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. In a small coastal village a boy kills. In agonizing visions, little Laurin (Dora Szinetar) sees the criminal and his gruesome deeds. But how can she put him? Her mother is dead and the father at sea...

Laurin (1989) - Amazon Germany

News and Theory / Re: Film Recommendations
« Last post by polkablues on Yesterday at 02:02:38 AM »
I would love some recommendations on low-key dramas similar to You can count on me and maybe The Shape of Things, preferably from the beginning of the 00s. They are so comforting to watch for some reason.

You can count on me are also the perfect film to watch before going to sleep. It might be the Mark Ruffalo effect. I would much rather watch a film if Ruffalo is in it, and I haven't decided if it's a gay-crush yet or if it's one of those manly dude-crushes you have on someone like Marlon Brandon, but he's weirdly great, right? Right!?

Anyway..

I can't say I've seen those so my rec may be a bit off, but the great master of low-key drama is Koreeda.
Shillin' my thread below.

Still Walking and Nobody Knows are good starting points.

Off the top of my head: Me Without You, Dreamland (2006), Shattered Glass, The Dreamlife of Angels, Never Let Me Go, Blue Car, Junebug, Drinking Buddies, Brooklyn

Oh, yeah. I was going to watch these years ago, but never did for some reason. Thanks.

Baumbach is such a hit or miss. I'm looking forward to this though.

I'll quote this line by @fauxbeatpoet about the movie : "Living with inherited trauma is noisy business."

I wasn't into the story at all.  I just kept thinking, "Wow.  Great cast.  They sure have a lot of words to say...  Wonder how many pages the script was...?"
