    “Father, I found my way.”

    Bigger and bolder than the first but also seemingly lacking in its link to its characters. Villeneuve commits to Herbert’s intense detail which makes for something both uniquely riveting as a mega-budget tentpole and frustrating as a cohesive piece that I felt like I could never sink my teeth into.

    Goodbye."

    (^Those were also the exact words that the grief counselor told me to say when my father, whom I had a very difficult relationship with, was dying)

    Goddamnit, he did it! Baumbach fucking did! He peaked here. Any filmmaker should wish that their peak could be this fucking amazing.

    I expected greatness but I didn't expect catharsis on this level. The Meyerowitz Stories is Baumbach's most mature, most humane,…
