Bernie (Richard Linklater – 2012) B+

Bernie is probably one of the most interesting characters that Jack Black has played. A real life Texas funeral director who is so well loved and liked in his community that people would not convict him of a murder that he definitely committed! Linklater tells the story through a mix of conventional story telling and “interviews” with what looks like real-life Texas characters who knew the real Bernie. It makes for an engaging film especially with Black’s top notch performance portraying this likable, odd and emotionally unstable.
