Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.2|5.0 Starsììì

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) moves through dialogue and scenes in a style that makes one think this is a type of reality show. This adult comedy presents its story in a way that life sometimes moves—disjointed, disconnected from reality, chaotically arranging life events without an easily perceived pattern that defines the more orderly life. It’s difficult to pin point any one scene and say, this is what the film is all about because the entire movie defies definition and works outside bound norms. The film classifies itself more as an eclectic offering for the elite intellectual rather than the every day person.


The Meyerowitz family railroads its way through dysfunctional relationships without resolution or sustainable forward movement.
