Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we hoard some shoes in the Philippines, go out murdering with our bestie, break our back, go behind the music at a small club where debauchery was the norm, and find inspiration in some kids who play high school football. The KingmakerDocumentary filmmaker Lauren Greenfield, who gave us two fantastic documentaries about the excesses of modern life, The Queen of Versailles and generation Wealth, looks at a woman who is perhaps best known for her shoe collection.
Greenfield is taking an interesting angle here in delving into the life of Imelda Marcos and looking at her excesses as well as her contributions when her husband was president of the Philippines. A jet-black comedy thriller in the same vein as Sightseers, A Serial Killer Guide to Life is a frenetic Thelma and Louise guaranteed to satisfy the self-help generation, and the modern human blood lust.
