An insufferable dramedy about a terrible person

The Meyerowitz Stories(New and Selected): Written and Directed by Noam Baumbach. Netflix really promoted this movie hardcore. They made it seem entertaining and it appeared to be a good time. I was wrong. This is a movie that it is all about the characters. You have to either find the characters amusing or find a connection with what they're going through in their lives, you might be interested in this ride. However if you find the characters to be insufferable much like I did, this will be painful to sit through. I can't fault the actors for this movie. They do a good choice bringing these characters to life and I have to admit that I have seen no other movies by this particular director. I might have brought this upon myself. This is a movie that lives inside this rich upper class composed of selfish and messed up artists. This reminded me of The Royal Tenenbaums but nowhere near as stylized. It is based around this overbearing father figure who is a teacher and an artist. He expects everyone in the movie to be focused on him and his life. If you met someone like this in real life, you would run screaming away from them immediately. It felt like that while I was watching it. This is another movie that just sort of meanders and it just ends. I think this might be a series of stories about this family from a bunch of different people's perspectives. You have to be on board with these characters. Again as I mentioned previously, I was not. I chuckled a bit at the extremely pornographic movies the teenage daughter of Adam Sandler distributed to her family. It does poke fun at snooty pretentious artist type who only care about the attention but it's not enough to make this a good film. I give this movie a D.

Fake Drama

Relative to what this cast should have accomplished, this is a 1. However, it is watchable. Dustin Hoffman will die an actor who always played the same part. A bumbling guy, messing up here and there, trying to get things right...misunderstood. Etc. They should have known better before casting him in this. He didn't commit to the character's selfishness, delusions and narcissism--his pent up anger. (Ironically, because in real life Hoffman, like the character, is a selfish prima donna) Without Hoffman actually acting the part, the rest of the actors are left hanging, losers all, who one can feel little sympathy for. In other words, the film is boring, one only waits in the hope that the cast will ultimately save it. The womens' part are atrocious for this day and age, a young women interested in porn, a lonely spinster and a lush. Emma Thompson should know better. I do a full-on rant about the film on YouTube. If you search "maxotics meyerowitz" you should find it. IMDb is unclear about linking to YouTube directly so I won't.

Exhausting

I heard a great New Yorker Radio Hour podcast about the film, so I dove in with high hopes. But it was a slog. I'm a big fan of Dustin Hoffman, but he must have been directed to wear out the audience, which he does quite effectively. I kept looking for some spark -- humor, emotion, love, or just about anything other than the sensation of standing next to a jackhammer for almost two hours. But that's what this film- watching experience was.
