Movie Review – Bernie

My 4th, and last film of the day of the NZIFF, was one I picked purely because of the star of the film, Jack Black! He’s one actor that can hardly do any wrong, and even when he’s doing wrong, he’s still good for a few laughs.

“In small-town Texas, the local mortician strikes up a friendship with a wealthy widow, though when he kills her, he goes to great lengths to create the illusion that she's alive.”

Without a doubt 'Bernie' was the highlight of the day’s films, and one that was perfect for the big screen! When the film causes people, from all over the cinema, to have bursts of laughter and giggles that randomly vocalise throughout the whole place, you know you're doing something right. It's a docudrama, but done in a way that it's nearly impossible to figure out who are the actors and who are the real people. It's an amazing true story, and Jack Black was perfect, which meant the film got so close to getting my converted A++.
A very strong A+ From Me!!!
