God Bless America opens to acclaim

16/11/2012


Opening in select cinemas across Australia God Bless America, writer-director Bobcat Goldthwait's incendiary violent movie about kindness has been greeted with positive notices from reviewers and critics. The film follows the exploits of cursed nice guy Frank (Joel Murray), a divorcee fed up with the mass culture miasma of modern America and together with a runaway girl (Tara Lynne Barr) commits to a killing spree as they drive a bright yellow Camaro across the country dispatching obnoxious reality TV stars, xenophobes, belligerent cinema goers and others.

Savage and often hilarious God Bless America is "a comic-cry of rage against 21st Century America" according to In Press magazine. Cinephilia describes it as "one of the most satisfying films you will see this year." David Stratton on At the Movies identifies it as a "way, way out there black comedy." Writing in Urban Cinefile Andrew Urban also praises the film as "a darkly comic tragedy and socially valuable scream that demands our attention."

God Bless America will be available on Blu-ray and DVD through Eagle Entertainment in February.
