The Dardennes capture the subtle anxieties of financial instability in away that's emotionally wrenching and physically exhausting, and Cotillard cements her position as one of the most consistently excellent actresses working today with an absolutely incredible performance as a mother struggling with retaining her dignity while fighting against crippling depression.
With "This is Where I Leave You", Shawn Levy has created a formless, saccharine, tonally-jarring, and aggressively mediocre mess, working from a script filled with groan-worthy lines ("anything happens all the time" being the worst offender) tied to the thinnest of premises. What's astounding is something so sanitary and inoffensive could even be produced with a cast this incredible; Tina Fey, the comedy titan, is reduced to blandly delivering idiotic platitudes about life while Connie Britton (Mrs. Coach Taylor, for christ's sake), Jason Bateman, the lovely Kathryn Hahn, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Jane Fonda (among others) are stuck with delivering variations of the same joke demanded by their individual one-note characters. In the right hands and a revised script, this could've been a force of a film, but Levy's ineptitude makes it nearly unwatchable.
Although the numerous well-staged (and suitably gruesome) battle sequences never really amount to anything more than "war is hell", the subsequent action is entertaining and smartly coupled with emotional heft from a cast giving excellent performances (particularly Lerman, who would be a major contender for an Oscar nomination in a less competitive year).
A feminist critique (if not quite a deconstruction) of the western genre, "The Homesman" is funny, bleak, covers a variety of topics including female isolation, solidarity, strength, etc. and features strong performances and a witty script.
Strange, disgusting, and yet undeniably witty, "Meet the Feebles" is an inventive satire of both the Muppets and the entertainment industry in general, featuring gleefully frantic direction from a young Peter Jackson.
