Paul’s Review of I Don’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore

I Don’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore was released on February 24th, 2017 and is the story of depressed nurse Ruth (Melanie Lynskey) who returns home to find that she has been burgled. She reports the incident to the police and all they do is give her advice to not leave the property unlocked. She decides to find the perpetrators herself and starts to ask her neighbours if they had seen anything. This is when she meets her rather weird neighbour Tony (Elijah Wood) who becomes enraged with the incident and together they decide to find her stolen property. The story then descends into what can only be described as blood, guts, comedy and a sense of wanting her to get justice for what has happened to her.

I really enjoyed this movie and can safely say that after the first half hour I was not expecting it to turn into such an enjoyable movie. Lynskey and Wood play off each other well and along with the supporting cast they make the story believable in a weird kind of way. The police officer however must have been completely stupid or couldn’t care and I would hope that real ones were not as inept as this one was. I would give this a high rating of 4.5/5 but as I have watched it once I don’t think a second time would be as much fun. Consequently, I will not be adding it to my collection.
