the squid and the whale
there's not much to say about the squid and the whale except that it'll probably end up being an overlooked indie film. and that would be sad as the movie is excellent all the way through. a movie about a family struggling through divorce, the squid and the whale presents everything with humor and wit, without desolving into overly sentimental schlop. while the tie-in with the title of the movie seems a bit stretched, i'll forgive them because they actually show the inside of new york's natural history museum.
