• Starting this week, a great comic chronicler of American neuroticism will be honored at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis with the series Noah Baumbach: Visibly Human. Kicking off the retrospective tomorrow is Baumbach’s endlessly quotable 1995 gem Kicking and Screaming, which perhaps captures the frightening—and in this case, hilarious—stasis of the post-college years better than any other film. (Baumbach will appear in person on April 5 with critic Scott Foundas to talk about his career, including his latest gem, Frances Ha, which will screen the night before.) Check out the original Kicking and Screaming trailer, full of the film’s memorable one-liners, below.

    I do love "Kicking and Screaming", will there be any of other Baumbach films out on Criterion including the rarely-seen "Highball"?
