The Squid and the Whale ★★★½

I'm gonna come clean, this is a super unlikeable film. Its characters are pretentious and unredeemable past the point of feeling any empathy, the soundtrack sounds exactly how you'd expect it to sound based off the poster, Jesse Eisenberg is in it...I mean, come on. It feels static but the underlying anger and toxicity of the situation is simultaneously always building till it reaches a point where it needs to come out. It feels real in a different way than what I'm used to. It's honest and it's different, I just wish I felt anything about it.
