I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore is how every single person I've told this movie about feels apparently. It follows a woman who is tired of interacting with mean people, and when she gets robbed and the police do very little, decides to take matters into her own hands, aided by her weird neighbor.
Everything about this movie is great. Melanie Lynskey is great. Her character is funny and innocent, yet well-written and realistic. Elijah Wood was my favorite performance here though. His character is hilarious and save for one scene, he's perfect for the entirety of this film. His character is a lot of fun and yet he too is realistic.
The comedy is exactly where I wanted it to be. It's circumstantial, so it really doesn't end up being forced in, and it's just hilarious. I found myself in stitches far too many times, and even had to rewind the movie to actually hear some of the dialogue that I missed while laughing.
The writing is done in such a way where most everything feels natural, yet still with a sense of both quirkiness and realism. This is a movie that I could honestly see being based off a true story. I'm quite sure it isn't, but it wouldn't surprise me at all either. And even though the movie makes a transition from quirky and comedic to dark and tense very quickly at some points, it still feels natural.
Oh and the soundtrack is really good. It suits the movie perfectly, and I'll probably go back and listen to it again soon.
Overall I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore is a fantastic movie, with great performances, writing, comedy, music, characters, etc. Everything is great. Despite how we and every single person I say the title to feels, this movie is perfectly at home in this world. In the end I would absolutely recommend it.
