The Land of Steady Habits

Nicole Holofcener Estados Unidos, 2018

MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film La tierra de las buenas costumbres

A true misfire. It's the "Netflix effect": so many talented directors have produced subpar, mediocre movies for the streaming giant. Holofcener's latest effort is a completely unremarkable, redundant, predictable tale of suburban ennui, middle age crises, first world problems, white privilege, McMansions, BMWs, absent parents, teenage angst etc, Also, Ben Stiller would have fared better than Mendelsohn.
