    Marriage Story sounds like it should have been called Divorce Story.

    Hmm, I really liked White Noise (although I read it like seven years ago, so who knows)

    Never seen a Baumbach movie though, so I can't speak much to that element

    One of my favorite parts of White Noise is structural, which... you could definitely replicate in film, but I'm not sure how well it will read to do so

    Edit: Hey wait a second, @Poorochondriac, you were the one who recommended White Noise to me like seven years ago

    i was telling @poorochondriac that i had to look up noah baumbach on imdb to be sure there wasn't going to be anything in there i forgot i liked, but his profile picture alone confirmed that there was no chance this would be the case.

    I want to say it was because we were talking about Infinite Jest at the time, but my memory of forum conversations from that long ago are about as hazy as my memory of books from that long ago

    Part of my dislike of White Noise compared to DeLillo's other stuff may be how much my dad endorsed and related to it.

    same

    I think the only books I loved then that I still like at all are the raw shark texts and generation x, though I've cooled an awful lot on the latter

  • StraightziStraightzi Here we may reign secure, and in my choice, To reign is worth ambition though in HellRegistered User regular
    I think part of the reason I liked White Noise was because, while I was never a full on townie, I grew up in a medium sized New England college town, I had a lot of high school friends whose parents I could easily slot into that book, and a lot of that satire hit pretty well for me as a result

    In retrospect, I'm unsure of how well it was supposed to hit, if maybe I was actually approaching it from the wrong angle and was not the intended audience, but it worked well at the time

    Has there been any information about what the alleged BVS abuse was?

    All I can find on a cursory search are the claims themselves.

    I agree with the caveat that my favorite thing in Infinite Jest was Pemulis's page-long description of his "most irreverent outfit" and that's still my favorite thing

    I am shuffling in the corner and kicking the air as I timidly say I really like multiple Baumbach movies and when I saw Marriage Story in the theater it devastated me so bad I had to like, take a walk afterwards, which I had never had to do after a movie

    I should probably give Francis Ha a chance since it seems less myopic and mean-spirited than Baumbach's other stuff. I spend most of the run time of his movies I've seen (Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding, and Greenberg) hoping that every character gets hit by a bus.

    I kind of think the problem with Greenberg is that it wasn't mean enough to the main character

    frances ha does not have that problem, the movie loves Frances but is honest, and it's not mean to her, she largely gets what she deserves

    Isn't David O. Russell the guy who's notoriously such a shithead that people never work with him more than once?

    Like there was the infamous meltdown captured on camera for I Heart Huckabees, and George Clooney said on the Three Kings press tour that he would never work with him again?

    he took five years off and came back and now everyone likes him and he’s apparently nice, and also has lost everything that made him special as a filmmaker

    He also admitted to groping his 19 year old trans niece. His defense in court was literally that she asked for it, and that was apparently good enough for rich white dudes.

    At me often and at someone daily. He’d throw off his headset and scream, “Today the sound department fucked me!” For me, it came to a head a couple of times. Once, he went after a camera-car driver who I knew from high school. I had nothing to do with his getting his job, but David began yelling and screaming at him and embarrassing him in front of everybody. I told him, “You can yell and scream and even fire him, but what you can’t do is humiliate him in front of people. Not on my set, if I have any say about it.” Another time he screamed at the script supervisor and made her cry. I wrote him a letter and said, “Look, I don’t know why you do this. You’ve written a brilliant script, and I think you’re a good director. Let’s not have a set like this. I don’t like it and I don’t work well like this.” I'm not one of those actors who likes things in disarray. He read the letter and we started all over again. But later, we were three weeks behind schedule, which puts some pressure on you, and he was in a bad mood. These army kids, who were working as extras, were supposed to tackle us. There were three helicopters in the air and 300 extras on the set. It was a tense time, and a little dangerous, too. David wanted one of the extras to grab me and throw me down. This kid was a little nervous about it, and David walked up to him and grabbed him. He pushed him onto the ground. He kicked him and screamed, “Do you want to be in this fucking movie? Then throw him to the fucking ground!” The second assistant director came up and said, “You don't do that, David. You want them to do something, you tell me.” David grabbed his walkie-talkie and threw it on the ground. He screamed, “Shut the fuck up! Fuck you,” and the AD goes, “Fuck you! I quit.” He walked off.It was a dangerous time. I’d sent him this letter. I was trying to make things work, so I went over and put my arm around him. I said, "David, it’s a big day. But you can’t shove, push or humiliate people who aren’t allowed to defend themselves.” He turned on me and said, “Why don’t you just worry about your fucked-up act? You’re being a dick. You want to hit me? You want to hit me? Come on, pussy, hit me.” I’m looking at him like he’s out of his mind. Then he started banging me on the head with his head. He goes, “Hit me, you pussy. Hit me.” Then he got me by the throat and I went nuts. Waldo, my buddy, one of the boys, grabbed me by the waist to get me to let go of him. I had him by the throat. I was going to kill him. Kill him. Finally, he apologized, but I walked away. By then the Warner Bros. guys were freaking out. David sort of pouted through the rest of the shoot and we finished the movie, but it was truly, without exception, the worst experience of my life.

    Just saw this on his wiki page
    In December 2011, Russell's 19 year old transgender niece, Nicole Peloquin, filed a police report alleging Russell had sexually assaulted her. The case was closed without any charges being filed because the alleged assault wasn't witnessed by police.[111] According to the police report, Russell offered to help Peloquin with ab exercises during which his hand hovered above her private parts. After inquiring about the hormones she used to increase breast size Russell slipped his hands under her shirt and felt both breasts. Russell confirmed that the incident happened, but told police that Peloquin was "acting very provocative toward him" and invited him to feel her breasts. He also admitted to being "curious about the breast enhancement." This incident was also directly mentioned in the 2014 Sony Pictures Hack

    Somehow I'm not surprised. It's like showbiz attracts some truly repugnant people.
