Mistress America (2015)

Finally Noah Baumbach a movie that is watchable! Yes, it’s still not perfect, but I did enjoy this movie. Greta Gerwig was adorable as ever and I really enjoyed Lola Kirke’s performance. The rest of the supporting cast was also good in its own way. Still, the Baumbach curse remains… he still can’t make a movie that isn’t just another “day in the life” kind of film. I really hate that genre of films. It’s like the reality TV form of movies. The writing is good though with a frenetic pace that will leave you breathless. I also laughed at several scenes, so good job on the comedy bits. Hopefully this is an upward trend for a writer/director I’ve come to love to hate.

77/100
