06.25.12Netflix Robin Williams plays a dad and his son is a collosal prick. Things happen and it's funny in the darkest possible way. I can probably spoil because I guess everyone's already seen it... and indeed i'd had a certain major event spoiled long ago but whatever. If you haven't seen it and dig Bobcat's other movies or dark comedy in general then this fits in nicely.

I love how movies like this are very much the protagonist vs. the world. Like the entire world. The protagonist is always more or less cool and very sympathetic and the world is just complete horseshit. What I liked about this movie is that Williams exploits that and reaps the benefits of it until, of course... because he's a good guy, everything rights itself in its shit-ness at the end.

It's a very cynical movie but I think people probably agree with it more than they let on. I'm glad I finally got around to seeing it.
