"Baumbach has crafted this tale out of real love....[He] tells the story with great fluidity....It's a breakthrough work and one of the year's most powerful pictures." Premiere "[B]oth sharply comical and piercingly sad....The film's tableau of domestic absurdity is likely to tickle, and also to lacerate, anyone who has either raised a child or been one." New York Times 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "All the performances are flawless....Without jerking tears or reducing the acid content of his wit, Baumbach's humane movie gets under your skin." Rolling Stone "Filled with a tremendous compassion for his young protagonists, Baumbach has created a profoundly moving story of boys to men." Film Comment "[I]t is poignant and focused on familial struggle....The young actors' performances are particularly haunting."USA Today "[A] painfully funny, semiautobiographical coming-of-age story....Baumbach is exceptionally attuned to the indignities of the situation, and what makes his movie as funny as it is sad is that its brutal honesty emanates from a deep well of empathy and understanding."Los Angeles Times "THE SQUID AND THE WHALE becomes its own realistic display of family entropy, as cautionary as it is educational." -- Grade: A- Entertainment Weekly "The evocation of the period is note-perfect, with a choice of original music likely to trigger jolts of recognition in viewers..." Sight and Sound "Never maudlin or overly precious, this comedy/drama is sharp, smart and short." Movieline's Hollywood Life 5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his charming film swims a complex channel between comedy and melodrama....A great white middle-class film. A truly great one." Uncut 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] quirky take on familial breakdown....The performances are excellent." Ultimate DVD 4 stars out of 5 -- "SQUID gets its strength from daring to face messy reality head-on." Total Film "Mr. Daniels gave one of the best performances of his career, a tour de force of emotional turmoil, intellectual constipation and egomania."Wall Street Journal58.97176

"...[A] wryly comic mood piece....Scenes move from hurt to resigned laughter and ring poignantly true..." Rolling Stone "...[The dialogue] scales the heights of post-Salinger acidity and provides an element of charming pathos..." -- Rating: B+Entertainment Weekly "...An easy, low-key tone, with nicely framed shots and subtle camera movements....Baumbach draws good performances from his cast..." Variety "...Baumbach surely does make these characters, all of whom are impeccably acted, absolutely real....Baumbach builds unobtrusively to a knock-your-socks-off finish that allows KICKING AND SCREAMING to conclude on its strongest note..." Los Angeles Times "...[The film has] a good eye and a terrific ear..."Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he balance is introspective, goofy, sharp, and every bit as relevant at the beginning of this century as it was at the end of the last decade."Premiere58.73071

3 stars out of 5 -- "[Walters'] eccentric old biddy is a tireless riot....[Linney] makes a formidable adversary....And there's an extra injection of Girl Power from newcomer Michelle Duncan..."Total Film "Brock's screenplay excels in highlighting the comic and disquieting side of suburbia. He depicts life in a dysfunctional household with the same mix of humour and insight found in Noah Baumbach's THE SQUID AND THE WHALE."Sight and Sound "It's an agreeable piece of whimsy with a personal touch by director Jeremy Brock that adds elements of authenticity."Box Office0.5304076

"Linney continues to create wonderfully comic neurotics....[The characters] remain vividly engaging."Box Office "THE SAVAGES is terrific -- A movie of uncommon appreciation for the nature and nurture that go into making us who we are, a perfectly calibrated drama both compassionate and unsentimental." -- Grade: AEntertainment Weekly "[A] beautifully nuanced tragicomedy about two floundering souls....A true-to-life tale told by a director and actors who've sunk so deep into their movie together you wonder how they ever surfaced."New York Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] remarkably clear-eyed portrait....While the film is heart-wrenchingly sad, it also is mordantly funny, uncomfortably prickly and above all, unflinching in its depiction of a believable sibling relationship."USA Today 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Linney is an amazement, showing vulnerability and strength at war for a character's soul....With the help of acting giants, Jenkins turns THE SAVAGES into a twisted, bittersweet pleasure."Rolling Stone "[A] marvellously acute, poignant and witty drama....The film retains a quirky, uplifting quality..."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] thoughtful, mordant and exquisitely scripted portrait of an estranged brother and sister..."Total Film "For a tender, uncommonly perceptive look at sibling relationships and a profound meditation on death and the meaning we draw from experience, THE SAVAGES is singularly funny and seriously moving."Los Angeles Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "THE SAVAGES makes a virtue of its sidetracked setting, finding scuffed humour in the minutiae of human life, so that when the laughs do come they feel profound, jagged and real."Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ell-observed social comedy and great acting by two of America's best....An insightful, uncompromised look at the banal and unavoidable realities of family life."Uncut0.2410573
