F. Murray Abraham,
Loveless, jobless, possibly terminally ill, Frank has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and offs the stupidest, cruelest, and most repellent members of society. He finds an unusual accomplice: 16-year-old Roxy, who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. Written by
The book that Frank lends the receptionist (briefly) is "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith and cover by America's Got Talent semi-finalist Doogie Horner. See more »
When Frank is loading the pistol after his daughter threw the tantrum over the phone it's obvious the gun has a blank firing barrel and he's loading regular full jacketed bullets. See more »

Exactly what part of his politics do you agree with?
Less gun control, of course.
Well, Frank, then every nut would have a gun.

Bobcat Goldthwait's latest feature as writer & director is a hilarious & articulately written black comedy commentary on contemporary American culture, or lack thereof. Yes, mass media's influence on the devolution of society has been tackled before (Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers & Euros Lyn's Fifteen Million Merits, for example) and the script has it's issues (which are plausibility/suspension of disbelief related IMO) but the dialogue does have monologues & diatribes that I think really do shine. The acting is FTW, and the whole small budget meets meaningful repartee feel of the piece threw me back to Mark Osbourne's 2000 film "Dropping Out". Most definitely catch it if you can! 8D
