Frances Ha (2012)

Director: Noah Baumbach. Cast: Greta Gerwig, Mickey Sumner, Adam Driver. 86 min. Rated R. Drama/Comedy.

Another art-house movie that makes feeble attempts at looking intelligent (e.g. filming in black-and-white). The story of a dancing student who in terms of words and actions demonstrates the intellect of a Neanderthal, definitely unable to live anywhere near human civilization, let alone live in New York City where the story is set. Is this an extension of American media's attempt to make stupidity look cute? I'd seen the film a few weeks ago, and the reason I wrote about it now, was only because I discovered actress/co-writer/director's wife Gerwig was nominated for a Golden Globe today.
