I just finished watching The Royal Tenenbaums. I’m at a loss to describe the film, but I really got into it. But then, I’m always into character movies. A movie could have zero plot, but if it’s about deep, engaging characters, I’m there.

I’m also at a loss to guess why this movie was in the comedy section at the video store. When I was in Play Performance in high school, we did monologues and other short scenes. Some were classed as dramatic, some as comic, and some as serio-comic–a piece with elements of the two. I guess that’s what this movie would be called, serio-comic.

Or maybe it’s just not really classifiable. That’s one of the things that make movies like this interesting to me.
