For those of you who are currently asking yourself “what every happened to that weird guy from the Police Academy movies?”, you’re missing out on quite a bit. Over the past few years, Bobcat Goldthwait has been taking the world of indie dark comedy by storm. Back in 2009, he wrote and directed the ultra dark comedy World’s Greatest Dad starring Robin Williams which opened the indie audience up to his “unique” style of storytelling.
Now, Bobcat is doing it again with Joel Murray in God Bless America. Here’s the synopsis for you to whet your beak.
Loveless, jobless and possibly terminally ill, Frank has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and decides to off the stupidest, cruelest and most repellent members of society with an unusual accomplice: 16-year-old Roxy, who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. From stand-up comedian and director Bobcat Goldthwait comes a scathing and hilarious attack on all that is sacred in the United States of America.
Basically, think of James Gunn’s Super meets Falling Down with a middle-American twist. Take a look at the über violent trailer after the jump, and catch the flick on VOD April 6 and theaters on May 11.
