I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore

I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore ★★★

Melanie Lynskey gives a characteristically wonderful performance, and this is occasionally very funny, but Macon Blair ends up writing himself into a corner which involves a boring shootout and a series of missed opportunities. Ultimately adds up to little beyond Lynskey's early statement of "Don't be assholes", which is a damn good thing to say but not a super strong thorough-line for a meandering noir - especially when the film doesn't acknowledge that its main character becomes basically as shitty as those around her.
