Slipping Away

This new movie, co-written by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida and directed by Sam Mendes, has a lot of potential (obligatory inclusion of the overrated and annoying Maggie Gyllenhall notwithstanding).

I can already see it filed right between the [selective] Noah Baumbach and Wes Anderson wings of our burgeoning little video library.

Via the always captivating TBTL.

Update: after I saw the movie I felt compelled to write this.

Ten years ago I loved "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" (now I might find it annoying, who knows).

So I take it you have "The Squid and the Whale" and "Margot at the Wedding" in your oeuvre?

"It's the fillet of the neighborhood."
