GOD BLESS AMERICA
(US - 2012)
"America has become a cruel and vicious place. We reward the shallowest, the dumbest, the meanest and the loudest. We no longer have any common sense of decency. No sense of shame. There is no right and wrong. The worst qualities in people are looked up to and celebrated."
GOD BLESS AMERICA finishes big, but doesn't quite have enough to sustain its entire running time (some excess could've been trimmed from the middle and it could've been even more potent at around 85 minutes), and some of Frank's diatribes can come off as a bit overwritten. However, Goldthwait's message is loud and clear in this fearless, incendiary indictment of modern American culture. (R, 104 mins)
