If you think you’ve had it up to here with the vapid celebrity culture in the US, the trailer for God Bless America demonstrates that you might have a ways to go. From the warped mind of Bobcat Goldthwait (yup, he’s a director now…check out World’s Greatest Dad), comes this film which follows a man who can’t take the stupidity anymore, and, in an effort to fend off an Idiocracy-like culture, goes on a killing spree.
Ok, Bobcat. You’ve got our interest.
In the film, a pitch-black comedy, a man is driven to suicide by both the state of the world and his own life, only to find that perhaps he could serve a higher purpose by dispatching those who dumb down pop culture to near-clinical levels. He finds a tweenage girl to serve as the Bonnie to his Clyde as he goes around clearing the streets and airwaves of the dregs of America.
Well done, Bobcat. Well done.
The film hits OnDemand on April 6 and theaters May 11.
