The Squid and the Whale

   Sorry for the delay! As I explained in my music blog college among other things have been keeping me hella busy. But to move onto the movie, The Squid and the Whale is one of my favorites. While Noah Baumbach is an unfavorable director in my eyes (Kicking and Screaming I actually turned off, but this and Greenberg were wonderful), this movie shows that he does know how to write a story that can blow my mind and help me connect with the characters. Such well created characters star in this. They are in depth and disgusting and beautiful just like real people. It deals with a messy divorce and the effects on two abnormal kids. I suggest it if you are a fan of Wes Anderson (Rushmore, Life Aquatic), mumblecore movies, or even just quirk humor.
