I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore (2017)I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore (2017)

Ruth is a single, thirty-something nursing assistant who's depressed. And why not? In the first few scenes of this movie, she rolls her eyes at a monster pick-up truck revving its engine and spewing exhaust, a racist patient of hers dies while uttering obscene inanities, she encounters a rude customer at the grocery store, and then finds dog poop on her front lawn not once but twice. When burglars ransack her house, and after the cops merely fill out the forms, she's had quite enough, and so with the help of an obnoxious and dorky neighbor named Tony, she embarks on a  bungling crusade of vigilante justice. This is a darkly comedic and creepy tale that premiered at Sundance, where it won a Grand Jury Prize, then about a month later was streamed exclusively on Netflix (it's a "Netflix Original"). One tiny redemptive tidbit amidst the gruesome violence: Ruth finds herself in church two times, and the title of this film is the title of a gospel tune that was covered by the Carter Family (1931) and also Woody Guthrie (1944), and also sung at the very end of the film.
