movie review of 'Margot at the Wedding' (dir. Noah Baumbach, 2008)


i just saw 'Margot at the Wedding'.
i liked it.
i really liked it.
i think it got some bad reviews recently.
i haven't read any of the bad reviews.
i really liked it.
i thought this person was good in it:
i thought this person was also good in it:
i only thought about them as 'celebrities' momentarily when they appeared on screen, and quickly afterwards 'believed' in them as characters.
i liked the dialogue.
i liked the 'emotional complexity' of the characters.
i liked the music playing very quietly in the background (i recognised X and Dinosaur Jr. and other things).
i liked how some of the shots were kind of awkward and very close to the actors.
i did not think about things like death, cats, my blog, apples, my novel, the endless things i seem to need to be doing at the moment and for some reason haven't been doing, work, illness, failure, miniature things, other cinema patrons, sex, food, needing a wee, 'the future', or other films for maybe 90% of the time i was watching this film.
