My third day at SXSW. I skipped the "state of american docs" panel (suspected answer: they're popular) so I wouldn't have to drive downtown and park for an hour just to drive back up here; did laundry instead. Then i skipped down to the Arbor for this movie and got there incredibly early. There was still one guy in line ahead of me though, who happened to work for Rotten Tomatoes. So we talked the wait away, he ended up interviewing me as i gave him a ride back downtown to his hotel afterward. but before that we saw the new Nicole Holofcener movie.

It's about on par with her previous two, which for me means it was great. Very feminine but in the best possible way. naturalistic, emotional, catty, casual, and very character-driven. If anything I think I liked it more than Lovely and Amazing but it's been too long since I've last seen Walking and Talking to compare. Anniston plays a stoner woman with a bunch of friends who all have money... so it's a bit like Parenthood or Your Friends and Neighbors in that each couple has their own thing going on but they also have similarities and that kind of thing... but it's well-written, well-acted, and well-executed. A good solid movie that fits in perfectly with her previous two. Now if only she'd make more than one movie every five years.
