I’m talkin’ about throwing a brick through the other guy’s window

Take away the quirkiness, take away the omnipresence of the director’s favorite font, take away the almost painfully composed cinematography and the normal-speed-to-slow-speed-with-decades-old-musical-soundtrack scenes, even take away the constant use of specific actors, and I think you’re still left with a great story in “The Royal Tennenbaums”.

But I like it with all those things, too.
