Remember Bobcat Goldthwait? Y’know, the guy with the really weird voice from the Police Academy movies? Well, these days he’s a director, and a pretty acclaimed one at that — his last film, World’s Greatest Dad, was Certified Fresh with the critics. Now he’s back with God Bless America, a subversive black comedy about a terminally ill man who’s fed up with contemporary culture. His solution? Go on a cross-country trek with a like-minded high school student and murder as many reality TV stars as possible. So far, God Bless America is getting good notices from critics, who call it an energetic, viciously funny satire of our current cultural landscape.
