United States | 2011 | Alex Ross Perry
Voted “Best Undistributed Film of 2011” in both the Village Voice and IndieWire Critics Poll, this quirky comedy can now be seen! An insufferable college dropout (Carlen Altman) who has broken up with her professor-lover takes a caustic road trip with her obnoxious younger brother (director Perry) to pick up her stuff. The two siblings (“the most loathsomely lovable brother-sister duo in the history of cinema,” according to the L.A. Weekly) verbally abuse each other the whole way. (Their endless exchanges recall the fast-flying insults of Howard Hawks’ screwball comedy classics Twentieth Century and His Girl Friday.)But by the end of their journey they see their relationship in a new light. “The most entertaining unpleasant film I’ve seen in years.” –David Edelstein, New York.
