The Beach Bum ★★★★★

"I'm a reverse paranoiac," says McConaughey near the end of the movie containing his best performance. "I'm quite certain the world is conspiring to make me happy." And the movie seems to have been conjured in order to make the world happy in return. Same avant-pop dirtbag-Malick style as Spring Breakers, but this time in service of a warm picaresque comedy that it's frankly impossible to imagine anyone disliking.
