From "Noah Baumbach Reveals the Key Movies that Made Him Want to Be a Filmmaker" by Eric Kohn

--from an article by Eric Kohn concerning Noah Baumbach's cinematic influences via Indiewire:

"Noah Baumbach has been making movies for more than 20 years, and in that time, has developed a distinctive voice in American cinema. His stories of neurotic New Yorkers are loaded with memorable moments of self-obsession and narcissistic showdowns. But Baumbach didn’t become a filmmaker overnight; he learned much about filmmaking from watching other movies. Raised by novelist Jonathan Baumbach and film critic Georgia Brown, Baumbach grew up surrounded by cinema, and it played a critical role in his evolving love for the medium.

The filmmaker looked back on some of these key influences during a conversation at the Film Society of Lincoln Center shortly before a screening of his latest effort, the ensemble comedy The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), which Netflix releases later this month."

In the same vein,

my notes on Frances Ha and Mistress America.
