Not all comedies end with a wedding

This year’s Sundance festival was taken by storm with the criminally funny I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore. While the film is certainly not a light-hearted bag of laughs, it comically echoes a feeling of drowning-in-douchebag many people have lately.

The story is based around a main character who cracks under the weight of the many assholes surrounding her. Lucky for her, one of the geekier assholes turns out to be alright. With nunchucks in hand, he has her back in a vigilante quest for her grandmother’s silverware. A dark and dangerous adventure ensues with flying ninja stars and angry amateur criminals.

Many of the films in this collection happily marry violence and comedy. However, if you’re easily offended or spend much of your time singing about mermaids, then this may not be the right territory for you. For example, Seven Psychopaths is about a crew of terrible people who steal an adorable Shih Tzu and hold it hostage for a fantasy bloody shootout. Not exactly a family flick. Still, just try and keep a straight face when Christopher Walken refuses to put up his hands.
