Pessimistic and cynical, I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore finds a way to convey the darkness of this world with unforced quirkiness and dark humor, and most of all, managing never to be maudlin. Melanie Lynskey is the “sick of this crap” hero we all want to be, and Elijah Wood gives probably one of my favorite performances of his career. The film’s climax is truly tense and gut wrenching, but the conclusion cheapens the overall journey in the end.
