Jody Hill United States, 2009

J. O.'s rating of the film Observe and Report

Despite the laziness of the writing, and more than its fair share of lulls, Observe and Report is a deeply disturbed, pitch black comedy. It's hardly even a comedy, more of a schizophrenic tale of violent revenge and confused justice - but there are also absurdities and jokes peppered throughout. All in all, despite its reputation, it is a quirky and original "comedy" from the very funny Jody Hill.
