Incendiary Image of the Day: Teen Kills Reality TV Star Edition

Click here to watch the YouTube video of Bobcat Goldthwait discussing his film God Bless America at The Toronto Film Festival. Apparently it’s about a “Loveless, jobless, possibly terminally ill, Frank (Joel Murray) [who] has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and offs the stupidest, cruelest, and most repellent members of society. He finds an unusual accomplice: 16-year old Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement.” As teenagers are wont to do. You know; without murdering people.

    Should be a great movie. If you haven’t seen his others, try “World’s Greatest Dad” & “Sleeping Dogs Lie”.

    “…stupidest, cruelest, and most repellent members of society.”

    Good for Frank, for taking on the Obama administration.

    Hm, how well this movie does in Canada depends on its overall message. If it’s ultimately about the power of individual Americans and the spirit of just revolution, it’ll flop. If it’s anti-American on the whole, it’ll get a standing ovation.

      I found this to be true in the Province of Quebec more than in Ontario and other predominantly English-speaking Provinces.

        I guess that’s the French influence for you….

    Who wants to bet that the film considers these people to be normal businessmen, people who believe in following the Constitution, gun owners, etc?

    If critiquing Hollywood’s trash culture is heretical than call me a heretic. Hollywood does not speak for the founding stock of America. It only seeks to corrupt us with scatological “humor” and the biting cynicism of the Levantine.

    If Hollywood were to be leveled with an earthquake those of us with clean spirits would rejoice.

      And think of all that new beachfront property in Arizona!

    This seems like it will just be a lame version of Falling Down with the addition of a kid. If you have not seen Falling Down, watch it….the ultimate f*ck, I’m done movie.
