2011’s God Bless America is a masterful tale of a man that is just fed up with the dumbing down of America and does something about it.
I watched this movie on the suggestion of two of my friends (Thanks Clint and Sonny). They suggested a fantastic movie.
This is a Bobcat Goldthwait movie (both written and directed), that really hit me where I live. It’s a statement about how Western society (specifically the U.S. of A.) has degenereated to watching useless, despicable humans on TV as reality stars, and how common decency has fell to the side of the road and has been replaced with jadedness and laughing at the unfortunate and celebrating the worst parts of humanity.
Frank, a recently unemployed man who hates what America is turning into decides to take on that which he hates – killing reality stars and other losers that get in the way. Along the trip he manages reluctantly (at first) to pick up a teenaged girl sidekicj who is also sick of what her world is turning into. The two leave a trail of (deserved) destruction in the wake as they work towards a mighty goal (see the movie to figure out what that is). They also discover what makes each other tick along the way.
This movie made me root for a couple of killers – and that is a pretty amazing feat. If you are looking for a smart, enjoyable film, and you too hate the dumbing down of society, then I suggest you watch this movie – NOW!
