A blackly comic lampooning of American popular culture, writer-director Bobcat Goldthwait’s God Bless America takes aim at everything from The Jersey Shore to American Idol, shooting them down through the combined mediums of satire and bullets. It’s an entertaining ride where the blood flows and the commentary bites, but don’t expect any critiques you haven’t heard before.
World’s Greatest Dad is a comedy about masturbation, suicide and the cult of personality – classic laugh-a-minute territory, I’m sure you’d agree. But wait! From this apparently gloomy subject matter emerges a brutally funny and twisted film which features Robin Williams giving his best performance in many years. By turns touching, disgusting, hilarious and insightful, this is not a film you want to miss.
