I watched The Squid and The Whale the other day and Frances Ha today, as a sort of, Noah Baumbach double feature, if you will. TS&TW was enjoyable, I thought it was a nice little outing, but Frances Ha was just, wow, it was so fucking dull.
I was actually engaged for the first half hour or so, I thought it was endearing, I thought it was funny in an awkward mumblecore kinda way, but after Adam Driver leaves, and Frances has that falling out with her friend, well, then it just gets depressing. Not Requiem For a Dream depressing, just so-fucking-boring-I-wanna-blow-my-brains-out type depressing.
There was no story. I couldn’t tell what the fuck was going on after that point, it was just the main character going to various places for no particular reason.
I mean, I respect Noah, like I said, TS&TW was nice, and I greatly admire his work with Wes Anderson, but this was just a fucking endurance test. It was only 86 minutes long and it felt like 3 hours. I need something loaded with fart/dick jokes to get all that quirkiness out of my head.
Just my personal opinion.
Did you just reblog Benedict Cumberbatch cosplaying an anime character?
Did Benedict Cumberbatch willingly cosplay an anime character?
…. is he not the perfect fit for said character?
HE EVEN HAS THE DOG
Benedict. Fucking. Cumberbatch. As Spike. Fucking. SPIEGEL.
…WITH EIN. THIS IS A BIG DEAL FOR ME.
