Richard Linklater’s true-crime black comedy Bernie is out now on Blu-Ray/DVD in New Zealand, and A Fistful of Culture has three copies to giveaway this week thanks to Madman. The film reunites the director with his School of Rock star Jack Black, playing a charming small-town funeral director who makes the mistake of befriending an unpopular and controlling elderly widow (Shirley MacLaine) with murderous results. Black delivers an uncharacteristically restrained performance that is arguably the best of his career, and a revitalised Matthew McConaughey also gives a great turn as the town’s blustery District Attorney.
This competition is for the Blu-Ray release of Bernie. You can read my 2012 NZIFF capsule review here, and check out the trailer below.
