Modern Love Is Automatic review at Indigenity

I'll have to check out MLIA just for the title alone - very good choice whoever picked it. From the brief review at Indigenity blog (nice yellow background at that blog btw, & great title design - good job Erin):

" "No Wave Douglas Sirk" isn't a bad description for this movie, but I see shades of Wes Anderson here, too; not only with the stylization but also with the characterization of Adrian and the sadness underneath it all. Leading lady Melodie Sisk is a curvy, husky-voiced leading lady in the vein of Susan Hayward and Kathleen Turner, and Maggie Ross' comical performance conceals the innate desperation of Adrian. The only bone I had to pick, really, was the death-metal music, which came off loud on my DVD player (but maybe sounds better in a theater setting). Even that, however, seems to be compliant with The Yeah Yeah Yeahs production values of Modern Love."

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
