Margot at the Wedding


Like some critic says this movie "is a circus of family neuroses and bad behavior that perhaps a therapist could make sense of better than Noah Baumbach can. Displaying some of the keen insight into the screwed-up minds of East Coast literati the writer-director displayed so winningly in ‘The Squid and the Whale’ and showing ever-developing instincts as a director, this study of a disastrous reunion of two sisters feels more like a collection of arresting scenes than a fully conceived and developed drama" and I absolutely agree.

With so many unlikable characters including the one portrayed by Nicole Kidman and so many fragments not tied together, this film is a complete mess.

I’m not going to lose words writing about how bad this movie is, so I simply close by saying that I suggest you avoid it.
