Good review of "Frances Ha," especially the comparison of this film's New York 20-something scene with Woody Allen's earlier ones.
I would have like more about Frances' psychological journey. That is, in the beginning she seems just slightly off-center. Then, as she navigates among these creatively-cursing New Yorkers, she moves farther away from the center. To wit, she's just a little quirky when she cleans her room by taking all the dirty clothes from her bed and putting them on the window sill. She is in need of help when she tries to impress friends by booking a weekend trip to Paris, where she spends half the time sleeping and the other half wandering aimlessly. You should give up on her, but you don't.
