Go watch this. It is now streaming on Netflix. It is directed by Macon Blair (the main guy from Blue Ruin and in Green Room).
I honestly had NO idea where this movie was going and it was a blast and really affecting. I thought Elijah Wood would bug me, but I swear he grew on me. Melanie Lynskey is so great! The music is great. David Yow of The Jesus Lizard is a main character (he is also really good), he gets in a fight with the actor who plays Jason Voorhees, so there is something I didn’t know I needed in my life.
It’s funny? It’s life affirming? It’s sad? Three cheers for empathy? Maybe?
