Noah Baumbach's latest venture comes out today. Greenberg appears to be simply the story about a man named Greenberg (played by a jaded Ben Stiller). He's a New Yorker who has moved to Los Angeles and dysfunction ensues. Probably a great casting with Stiller as no one plays the "guy who nothing goes right for" like him. Furthermore, comedians in serious roles almost always turn heads. The movie is almost as intriguing for the fact as the movie has a soundtrack/score by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem. The preview below has "All My Friends" playing throughout - it is easily one of the best songs of the 00's.

I will most likely drag Whit to see this, and awkwardness will ensue. Have you watched Noah Baumbach movies? You worry about the guy's upbringing. His overly indie movies that usually feature 1 or 2 big names will usually have a couple of moments that will make you squirm in your seat (or make you unable to make eye contact with the person you are watching the movie with). Such I guess are the harsh realities of life? Too real for me sometimes. The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding, Kicking & Screaming.......awkward, awkward, awkward. I guess I can only stomach "watered down" Noah like The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (he wrote the screenplay). Check it out when it makes its way to your city, but don't say I didn't warn you....cringe.
