Andrew Daley’s review published on Letterboxd:
"Have you ever eaten cat meat?"
"No man, I've never had any cat meat"
"Well it makes you invisible, you know?"
Just one of the delightfully bizarre conversations you'll face in I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore, or 'An Unnecessary Python' as i'm going to rename it in my head canon...
Elijah Wood plays the weirdo martial arts-obsessed neighbour in this quirky neo-noir film that picked up a shitton of awards at Sundance. Meanwhile Melanie Lynskey is the stereotype-flipped antihero that the universe just loves to shit on for no reason. My first response is that this film was fucking weird, with less of an overarching narrative and instead playing out a chain of cause/effect events that tenuously link together in the most uncomfortable (boring) fashion.
I don't really know what to say, I thought it was alright, the cop was an absolute dick and Melanie Lynskey's best friend was an unsympathetic ass.
It's on Netflix, check it.
