Summary: Joel Murray (Bill's bro, Freddy Rumsen in Mad Men ) has one of those faces you instantly recognise, but take a while to place. This positions him well as the 'everyman' at the centre of this film, although his performance is pretty glum. Plus in a post- Breaking Bad world, the terminal cancer diagnosis that partially inspires his rampage feels rote.
Excerpt: Satirical in nature, "God Bless America" questions the morality and social denigration of the modern world we live in. The story is sharp yet still makes for easy viewing, a mix of shock-tactic violence and witty dialogue that can sometimes border on being too lengthy. Despite being uneven in parts, many will find themselves agreeing with the comical verbal tirades of the lead, as the film blurs the line between being darkly amusing and disturbingly truthful.
Summary: ‘Ik wil alleen maar mensen doden die verdienen te sterven’, stelt hoofdrolspeler Frank. In de zwarte komedie God Bless America moeten mensen uit realityshows en commercials, nieuwslezers, rechtse politici en andere irritante aso’s vrezen voor hun leven.
