    GOD BLESS AMERICA - Bobcat Goldthwait 2011

    Bobcat's latest begins with a scene that will break some audience members. A violent scene of infanticide that leaves the mother soaked in the blood of her only child. Thankfully this is just a fantasy of Frank, a man tormented by migraines and disgusted with American culture. Terminally ill he locks, loads, and sets out to rid society of it's most vile offenders. After offing a spoiled reality show star he finds a kindred spirit in a 16 years old girl who wishes to join him on his killing spree. Although the targets of Frank's rage show him to be an extreme lefty much of what he has to say about the state of US culture would not be out of place on a conservative or even Christian forum. I suck at reviews so just check out the red band trailer.

    I have been mildly curious about this for a few months now. It certainly seems derivative, but that is not a deal-killer. I'm also intrigued about his dog-fucking movie. I'd be interested in hearing opinions on either from any wise folks who have partaken. (Watched the films, not fucked dogs.)

    Haven't seen it but according to a review I read it is a dog blowing movie. I did see, and throughly enjoyed, World's Greatest Dad. I forget to mention that I truly enjoyed God... especially Joel Murray. The plot doesn't hold up but the plot is beside the point. I also was pleased that Bobcat poked fun at his precocious teen character by having Joel refer to her as Juno.

    I am going to post a full review online tomorrow, but I'll tease that by saying I liked God Bless America but found it rather less "outrageous" than the trailer suggested. This is not necessarily a criticism; it's not a wrenching thriller or an outright comedy, but leans toward the farcical end of things, as would be expected. Consequently, it doesn't have quite the same impact as something like Falling Down or Natural Born Killers, which it might superficially resemble in terms of theme. The only other Bobcat Goldthwaite film I've seen is Shakes the Clown and I liked that a lot.

    The only moment I found "outrageous" was the infantacide in the opening sequence. Reading online comments it appears I am the only person who was shocked by this. I guess I am not jaded enough.

    Actually, the most shocking moment to me was the first real murder, which switches modes (it has a funny bit right before the actual killing then hits you with an abrupt, brutal death).

    For those who are curious, here's the link to my full review (no real spoilers):

    Sleeping Dogs Lie (original title: Stay) is one of my favourite movies of the '00s. It's not a cheap comedy, though. Their are some hilarious scenes (especially involving the meth-addict brother) but it's actually a very clever, subversive, and even heartbreaking film. It's a masterpiece.

    I thought Sleeping Dogs Lie was just ok, but I really really loved World's Greatest Dad and I'm very much looking forward to this one.

    I am hoping that the blu-ray of God.. contains a deleted scene where Frank wipes that arrogant, hateful smirk off of Bill Maher's smug mug.
