2013 #19: SIGHTSEERS

Dark comedies rarely get darker or meaner than Ben Wheatley's misanthropic road-trip satire Sightseers. Sort of like the British version of Bobcat Goldthwait's brilliant yet underrated gem God Bless America, it's a film that revels in its nastiness, and one that has a distinct (if deranged) point of view concerning society and its various malfunctions. Alice Lowe and Steve Oram are both terrifically vile and frequently hilarious. A movie only for those who enjoy the bitter, sour taste of cruel.
