The Squid and the Whale

A feather of a movie. The matter-of-fact, laid-back, middle-class microcosmic manner in which writer/director Noah Baumbach lays out the drama is so undramatic, and the humor is so anti-jokey and deftly delivered, that a half-decent wind threatens to blow it all away.

Yet it all hangs together, and I can’t come across this movie on cable without once again watching it to the end.
