5.0 out of 5 stars The most therapeutic film experience I have ever had, 5 July 2012
This review is from: God Bless America (2011) [DVD] (DVD)
Putting a 5-star review is a very bold move. Typically it denotes a lack of shrewdness towards the product, but in this case I cannot emphasise enough how much I have been waiting for a movie like this. God Bless America is the story of Frank, a middle aged man who suffers from chronic migraines, and the idiocies of modern society. When his doctor tells him he has a massive tumour in his brain, he all but gives up on life entirely. But he then hits upon an idea, inspired by awful reality television: some people deserve to die more.

Cue what is easily the funniest spree killing you are ever likely to see (not that there's much competition, I'll grant you). Simply put, this film is perfect for everyone who despairs modern society. The constant drone of the entitled, ignorant masses who chew up advertising and senseless television or the sound of those with the least educated opinions stating their beliefs the loudest. This film is the counter argument.

I won't pretend this will be everyone's favourite film, but for me it was so frightfully clear it would be from the first 5 minutes. Some have criticised it for being preachy, but ultimately whilst there are a fair few diatribes and speeches, they are so damned compelling it moves from "preachy" to "absolutely factual" in one fail swoop. God Bless America is funny, witty, extremely violent and above all else, incredibly entertaining. I recommend this movie to basically everyone... unless you are:
* A republican,
* A fundamentalist religious zealot,
* A big fan of the Kardashians,
* Scared of violence
