God Bless America (2011)
I know it's not normal to want to kill, but I also know that I am no longer normal
God Bless America is a political incorrect story about a social misfit and a teenage girl who goes on a killing spree. The meet by coincidence and decide to end the lives of all the stupid people they meet. Of course they decide themselves who qualifies for death and who deserves to live.
The movie gives a commentary on the modern (popstar/idol-) society. A cynical but lightly written script. Infectious acting and decent camera work. The road trip element reminiscences of Nabokovs Lolita.
The movie appeals to a certain feeling that perhaps we all feel form time to time: we watch television, read newspapers and look outside our windows. It's all fine but we feel estranged. And sometimes we feel so detached that we get angry. This movie makes a cartoon out of this sentiment, but it's an awful lot of fun to watch it.
The film is not very elaborate as social criticism, but highly recommended as a cinematic experience.
