Review of 'I don't feel at home in this world any more'

Billed as a comedy-thriller, but rather darker than we were expecting; rather a lot of gore and death. A woman is burgled and ends up trying to get her stuff back after the police take very little interest (apart from admonishing her about her home security and insurance). As a result she gets to see into a subculture of violence and criminality that's right next door.

Accurate in its depiction of working class life in America, unlike the way that TV and films often make it look like working class Americans live in mansions - this woman and her new neighbour-friend live in houses that are little better than shacks.

Watched on Netflix - we chose it because it had won a prize at Sundance.
