  • Anderson offers no phony uplift for the Tenenbaums or for audiences. But he does know how to take a sad song and make it better. In these troubled times, that's a gift. show more

  • Might have been about the rise and fall of a family of gifted children. That would have been the typical way to approach the story. Instead, it's something rare -- a movie about people who have already fallen, whose best days are behind them. show more

  • Absurdist, but also condescending and self-infatuated; The Royal Tenenbaums is at least three times too clever for its own good. show more
