In 2011, comedian/filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait sent a message to the American public – stop being an assholes. His film God Bless America was a no-holds-barred attack on our culture’s most mind-numbing afronts. Did we get the message? Assumedly not.

Hey humanity, stop being “assholes, dildoes and fuckfaces.” As much as life imitates art, you’d better believe the phrase works both ways. I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore isn’t just a title, it’s a general feeling about our me-me-me, all-for-one society – and one hell of a directorial debut for Mr. Blair.
