Arizona ★★★★

There's no such thing as being a good person in a bad system. A jet-black comedy that treats post-housing bubble correction Arizona as a hopeless wasteland, it's bursting with anger, but never lets even its most trenchant critiques of white-male entitlement ("Look what we did!") or failed late capitalism overpower its propulsive mix of great dialogue and fast-moving plot. The sort of movie that people would say "is like a Coen brothers movie" back when FARGO was what people thought of when they thought of a Coen Brothers movie. It doesn't quite reach those heights, either on a script or drama basis, but it deserves much better than its seemingly negligible profile. (Seth Rogen cameo is kind of a mistake, though.)
