TOP 15 MOVIES OF THE YEAR…#10 WILL SHOCK YOU

1. I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore

Suspenseful and hilarious, despondent and optimistic, I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore is a masterful genre film, one that immerses itself in the small, painful indignities of everyday life, and then casts the battle against those wrongs as a serio-comic odyssey of sleuthing, heavy metal and nunchakus. After her house is burglarized, nurse Ruth (Melanie Lynsky) partners with rat-tailed martial-arts-loving neighbor Tony (Elijah Wood) to recover her stolen belongings. Their ensuing black-comedy adventure is grimy, bloody, and ridiculous, as director Macon Blair (best known for his performances in Jeremy Saulnier’s Blue Ruin and Green Room) pitches his material as an absurdist neo-noir saga about combatting existential despair. Courtesy of a great Lynsky performance that’s equal parts miserable and furious, I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore (which won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance before premiering exclusively on Netflix) finds humor and horror in the notion that “everyone is an asshole”—and then locates hope in the closing-note idea that, rather than worrying about them, life is best spent in the company of those precious few who aren’t.
