ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW
4 out of 5. Speaking of smart people, Miranda July's ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW is all about smart writing. Not the kind of writing like JUNO where everyone sounded witty and verbose but the kind of writing that plays eccentricities off each other but not superfluously. All the pieces fit together into a complex tapestry of character and story that actually mean something. She acts in it as well, which is yet another facet of her crazy abilities as an artist. I wished she'd do more. If you like Todd Solondz work, like Happiness or Palindromes you will most likely dig this.
