Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

Just in time for the holidays, Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story premieres on Netflix, documenting in by-all-accounts harrowing detail the psychological torment that befalls a couple as their marriage disintegrates. To celebrate, Rob and Carrie have finally decided we’re going to look at all of our favorite films about the inevitable death of love and the acrimony and rage that come when two people violently sever their matrimonial ties, in brazen defiance of God’s will — yep, movies about divorce. An especially fun and bubbly time is guaranteed for all!
