Description

In the aftermath of a race riot, Abe Forsythe’s challenging dark comedy follows two carloads of idiots out to make trouble. In one, a gang of young white friends are sick of Muslim immigrants taking over their beaches. In the other, recent transplants from Lebanon are sick being pushed around. Both sides are fueled by macho rage, armed and seriously stupid. Forsythe’s film seems eerily timely in this era when people comfortably air racist grievances and won’t share blame as violence erupts.  -Bears Fonte
