Not A Movie Review
A Meeting Of Minds Let me preface this post: this isn't a movie review per se but there is a film involved and I do discuss aspects of it. There are many places where one can find detailed cinema information and backstories of all kinds that will likely fulfill any film fantasy if you want a real review. I prefer to use the film to explore other thoughts.
A recent trip to the theater found me watching "Marriage Story". It was released in early November so you may have seen it already. I was familiar with writer/director Noah Baumbach so I had certain knowledge and expectations. This has thrown me off-track more than once so I didn't want to prejudge the movie but did warn my movie companion it might a bit wordy. He didn't want to know anything about the movie prior to seeing it. I can understand that.
Well, there is a lot of dialog. I wasn't disappointed in the movie. In any aspect. I liked it. A lot. But I was a bit concerned that my friend might be overwhelmed with the chatter chatter chatter. That said the dialog is delivered effectively. The cast is exceptioanlly good and well-chosen. I liked the narrative and despite the title it is not a story of marriage. At least not in the traditional sense of the term. Okay...I will keep my mouth closed now. As for my friend, he enjoyed it too. One of the better movies he has seen this year.
I was happy to hear that but the discussion that took place after was about connections of all different sorts. That's where the story begins for me. Any movie is just a preview of what comes next... Real life is more than a screenplay. No script. Very little drama. Discussions start. . .
