I don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore (Macon Blair – 2017) A-

It is weird how Netflix does so little to market the films they produce or acquire. This is another example of a really good flick that not many might have heard of. It’s full of personality and interesting characters but seems to get buried on the site. Ruth lives a “normal” but depressing existence as a nurse. She seems down-trodden, beaten and anyone can eat her lunch. When she gets burglarized though she seems to wake up and her purpose, accompanied by her weird neighbor, is to track down who stole her silverware. It’s well-acted and most characters are interesting three-dimensional individuals. It held my attention as it twisted and turned in bloody absurdity until the insane finale.
