I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore (2017) Review
I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore (2017) is a TV-MA 1h 33 min American comedy crime-drama-thriller film that was shot in Portland, Oregon, USA. Director and writer Macon Blair (Blue Ruin (2013), Green Room (2015), Murder Party (2007), Gold (2016)) also acted in this movie as a bar guy. Macon’s talent shines in this film and cannot be missed as he slowly builds the tension to an ending with an explosion of violence. His masterpiece was a unique, unpredictable feature that I will recommend to all fans because it was a smooth blend of violence and comedy. The movie contains no opening credits, bad language, burglary, depression, violence, suspense, thrills, sitting on the edge of your seat moments, and comedy.
Melanie Lynskey plays the lead giving us an outstanding performance as a depressed worn out nurse who feels alone and isolated from everyone around her except for her stoner child who now has a child and no time for her. Ruth is sick and tired of people being indecent. There were items stolen from Ruth’s apartment during a burglary/break-in, but officers took no action on the case since it was only her laptop and a few chinaware that was stolen. Ruth decides to do some investigating and finds a clue as to where the thieves are and took her neighbor, Tony (Elijah Wood - Green Street Hooligans (2005), The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)) along with her to help her.
The duo walked into an underworld of degenerate criminals that they had no idea about and was not prepared to deal with leading the movie to escalate into a thriller that was a joy to watch. Elijah Wood gave one of his best performances in this film, and I have not seen him this good in a very long time as it was solid. It was interesting to see the insight given about the norms of our lower-class American society. This film is one of the first movies in a long time that I could not find even one goof or mishap in which is amazing.
