  1. Judging from my Twitter peeps at Sundance, Mistress America looks like a big hit. Several people said it's his funniest comedy and that the Baumbach/Gerwig chemistry is getting stronger. I can't wait. Here's a review.
  2. A Noah Baumbach-Jesse Eisenberg reunion brews EXCLUSIVE: Noah Baumbach introduced many of us to Jesse Eisenberg when he cast the young actor as the son of divorcing parents in 2005 breakout "The Squid and the Whale." Now the two look to be reuniting -- with Eisenberg this time playing one half of a couple. According to a person who was briefed on the project but was not authorized to talk about it publicly, Eisenberg is in talks to play one of the lead roles in "While We're Young," an intergenerational couples drama that will be Baumbach's next film. Eisenberg, nominated for an Oscar for his performance in "The Social Network," could be working with another Oscar nominee, Naomi Watts, who's also in talks to star in the drama, according to the person briefed on the project. . . . Baumbach's independently financed film is about a 40-ish childless couple that begins feeling alienated from their friends as those friends begin to procreate. They in turn befriend a younger couple that in turn helps convince the older pair to loosen up. The film is being produced by Scott Rudin, who was also Eisenberg's producer on "The Social Network." Ben Stiller, who starred in Baumbach's most recent "Greenberg," has already been set as the older male. The actress playing the young female has not been set. Baumbach's new movie has had a bit of a cast shake-up of late. James Franco was set to play the younger male role that Eisenberg could occupy (if it's not one 2011 Oscar nominee, it's another) and Cate Blanchett the older female one, but each fell out in recent months. . . .

  3. I love this line from Mike D'Angelo's Letterboxd blurb: And this sound promising:
  4. I saw The Squid and the Whale last night as part of the Three Rivers Film Festival. Packed house (awesome!). Had mixed thoughts throughout. Right after I came out of the screening a guy handed me a piece of paper to rank how I enjoyed the film on a 1 to 5 scale for the Festival's audience prize. Strangely enough, I thought, because the film does a fantastic job of showing how patterns of snap, unconsidered judgments retard maturity and destroy relationships. So, I gave the film a 3. Now, though, in considering it and reading a few things and talking about it some, I'm thinking 4. And it's a nice companion, though very differently-measured, to Me and You.... And maybe Baumbach has more talent than Anderson in getting to a real emotional core; the way that he uses humor here in contrast to the way Wes does in, say, The Royal Tenebaums is very intriguing. I think you even see the Tenenbaum house at one point (or a look-alike), and there's certainly a similarity in character universe (and even in the way the characters lie), but the approach is so different. Has anyone caught up with this yet?
  5. Persona

    Greenberg (2010)

    Links to Kicking and Screaming (1995), The Squid and the Whale (2005) and Margot at the Wedding (2007), which Baumbach directed, and to The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009) and The Emperor's Children (in development), which he (co-)wrote, and Mr. Popper's Penguins, which is in pre-production, planning for Baumbach to again direct Stiller. I'm clearing my schedule to get to a double-feature Monday Tuesday -- Chloe and Greenberg. Greenberg's trailer makes it look like a dry, quirky comedic character study that shouldn't be passed up if you have the chance: Looks like a relaxing, perhaps somewhat reflective, decent-feeling night at the movies.
  6. Woo hoo! Now for a little alliteration: One of my favorite college comedies, Kicking and Screaming, (with Chris Eigeman!) is coming to the Criterion Collection! Noah Baumbach's first film (before The Squid and the Whale) is memorably funny comedy that would fit nicely in a festival alongside anything by Whit Stillman or Wes Anderson. If you haven't seen it, soon you'll get to see the full Criterion treatment, featuring a new essay by Jonathan Rosenbaum, and new conversations with Baumbach, Eigeman, Josh Hamilton, and Carlos Jacott. More here!
  7. Here's the trailer for Noah Baumbach's next, which I find extremely appealing.
