The Royal Tenenbaums was pretty good. Quirky, offbeat dramedy about a father who has been an asshole his entire life trying to get his family to accept him now that he's gone broke. Of course he's not a pure asshole, and through little gestures, he manages to show his family that he's not entirely heartless; just an old lonely man who realizes the errors of his ways. The performances are odd, very cold, and cardboard-like on purpose, but it's all the more touching when the characters show their emotions and pain. A nice, unconventional family film. 3.5 stars.
