Noah Baumbach - The Squid and the Whale (3)

This is a nice enough movie, I suppose, but it left me with a feeling of emptyness where meaning should have been. It can't possibly want to tell me something about human relations, or the male character's faults wouldn't be so blatant and unsubtle, and it can't be entertainment either, for though there is quite a few funny bits, the overall mood is that of oppression. It must have been liberating for Baumbach, who's personal history this is rumored to reflect, but doesn't do much for me.
