It’s hard to deny that the world is full of doom and gloom, and whilst we can look at the world through a nihilistic window made up of anger and disgust, it’s better to smash the window with a brick of hope and attempt to breathe in the fresh air that wafts inward through the gaping hole you just made (also, the freezing cold. It’s winter after all.)
I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore takes the opposite stance and turns into the skid of pessimism and anger by taking their mild-mannered protagonist and turning them into a psychopathic vigilante who wants the world to be a better place.
Whilst this sort of film would ordinarily speak to the blackened heart that beats inside of me, I find it hard to elicit any emotional response from it at all. Perhaps my nihilistic ways are slowly abating, or maybe it just doesn’t seem like a good film…
I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore is out on Netflix on February 24th!
