I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore Movie Review 2017
Writer/director, Macon Blair doesn’t make something that comes just out of the box. They are well known for ditching their old methods of directing and screening their stories on the silver screen. “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” is the perfect example that sets the plot in early 90s.
There is something to be duly noted in the direction of Blair that rather than focusing on the big points of the plot. He tend to pin point more on the subtle and impressive portions of the characters, and that’s what make this movie a standoff.
Melanie Lynskey, who portrayed the character of a depressed woman whose house, got broken by the burglars. Hell-bent on punishing the ones who broke into her house. Only to find, the threads were woven deeper than she thought. Elijah Wood’s Tony, who couldn’t be any better than the character he chosen for – an oddball – helps her out in the conquest, certainly the best choice for the role.
The plot throws light upon the sheer indifference upon how a decent neighbor. Who suffers over and over until they snap. They take charge of the situation as they make their mind to say – no more – to such an enormous discrepancy. The movie is a must a much. If you really like to see how a citizen who pushed through the limit and puts through the indignities, until they get up and fight for it.
The film is worth watching as Ruth, played by Lynskey. Who acts intelligently, in order to stop it for once and for all. You will be more reactive and sensitive during the runtime of the movie. Thanks to director Blair who throws more light upon the individuality of the characters, rather than focusing upon the big plot.
The movie is perfect work of skilled acting and perfect direction blend with real life hostility. Which you will not resist watching over and over.
