A film that's neither funny nor exciting, although it often seems to be straining to be one or the other.
Arizona might have worked better as a smart-ass social commentary if its tsk-tsking of consumerist myopia wasn't so consistently on the nose and its plot didn't swiftly devolve into slasher movie cliches.
This 85-minute, "Ten Little Indian"-style comedy-horror mash-up is basically a cameo-studded muddle that may have looked good on paper, but movie screens aren't made of paper.
Severely wasting the talents of Rosemary DeWitt, who really, really deserves better material, Arizona is as arid and barren as the state that provides its title.
Danny McBride is at his funniest and scariest in "Arizona," a darkly comic film noir that works well as both a violent thriller and as a ruthless satire of over-extended American dreamers.
A nihilist garbage fire with a fake female-empowerment bow on top.
The movie soon stops being the funny version of this story and just becomes the regular version, where McBride is a psycho with no compunction about killing, and that gets old fast.
The zany turn the film takes only works in part, though, and that's largely due to the performance by McBride who continually ramps up Sonny's psychosis.
Arizona creates a sense of isolated, store bought Americana that represented safety for many of its country's citizens during the mid-aughts.
It's a showcase for McBride's knack for making character studies out of blustering macho madness.
It's stupid, exploits the housing crisis as fodder for violent lunacy, and murders with impunity. But I did have fun.
Although... some of the dialogues referring to the real estate market and North American idiosyncrasies are exceptional, they are not enough to maintain neither the interest nor the benevolence of the audience. [Full review in Spanish]
Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got outta hand fast.
