"Do I look old to you?" Local New York-based filmmaker Noah Baumbach has two new films coming out this year, the first being the wacky While We're Young about a couple growing older (see the trailer), and the other being Mistress America, a sort-of-sequel to his 2012 film Frances Ha.

This includes The Squid and the Whale (still my favorite Baumbach film so far) and Kicking and Screaming, plus a few other films. Read on. The series has quietly launched with info at growing-up-baumbach.com and will be taking place in 16 different cities across the country, starting March leading up to the release of While We're Young at the end of this month.

The 11 Indie Films You Must See This March

1 March 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

#1. It Follows (March 13)(Film Page) Director: David Robert Mitchell Cast: Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto, Jake Weary, Olivia Luccardi, Lili Sepe Criticwire Average: A- Why is it a "Must See"? Director David Robert Mitchell follows up "The Myth of the American Sleepover" with an expressionistic teen horror movie that's like nothing else. While "Myth of the American Sleepover" took the whiny young archetypes of a John Hughes movie in an expressionistic direction, "It Follows" turns to eighties teen slashers of the "Halloween" and "Nightmare on Elm Street" variety while elevating them to a more abstract plane, rendering the looming threat of adulthood in ominous terms. #2. While We're Young (March 27)(Film Page) Director: Noah Baumbach Cast: Ben Stiller, Amanda Seyfried, Naomi Watts, Charles Grodin Criticwire Average: B+ Why is it a "Must See"?

New Trailer Arrives For Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young

26 February 2015 1:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Noah Baumbach has carved out a successful slate of features exploring a variety of demographics. From The Squid And The Whale‘s dysfunctional family dynamic to Frances Ha‘s directionless-yet-awesome protagonist, the director has tackled his fair share of neuroses. With his latest offering, comedy drama While We’re Young, his sights are set on investigating an entirely new type of character.

The film stars Naomi Watts and Ben Stiller, a happily-married couple each in their forties. Having made peace with the prospect of a childless future, the pair broaden their horizons when they befriend a much younger couple – played by Amanda Seyfried and Adam Driver. And therein begins the next stage in their life as Watts and Stiller commence with a series of pratfalls during their attempts at impressing their youthful companions.

Last fall we saw the first teaser, that set up the premise nicely while offering both leads a solid amount of one-liners. »

Ben Stiller Tries to Be Hip in Second Trailer for 'While We're Young'

26 February 2015 10:47 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Why do you suddenly want to hang out with a couple of 25 year olds?" You're only as young as you feel, and Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts seem to feel like they're in their mid-20s again. At least, that's what happens when they start hanging out with youngsters Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried in While We're Young, the latest from The Squid and the Whale / Frances Ha writer & director Noah Baumbach. This might be Baumbach's most accessible film, perhaps with a skew toward older crowds as opposed to the usual young, hip indie audience. But the writing, characters and comedy are genuine enough for all to enjoy. Here's the second trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young originally from Yahoo: You can still watch the first trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young right here. While We're Young is written and directed by Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha, »

Birdman | Blu-Ray Review

24 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Taking home four Oscars out of its nine nominations, including Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay and Cinematography, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Birdman was the big winner at this year’s Academy Awards. Premiering last August at the Venice Film Festival (where it left with trio of minor awards), cinematography has long been the awards season lock for the film (winning Lubezki a BAFTA), and it’s picked up a pair of Golden Globes (Screenplay and Actor) and a host of critic’s choice awards. Box office has also been profitable, opening last October in limited release before expanding nationwide Mid-November to successful box office results—its Best Picture win will most likely edge it over or close to the one hundred million mark.

Not only is Birdman (or The Virtue of Ignorance) arguably the best film of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s impressive filmography (from a list that includes Amores Perros, »
