Set in the midst of the 2009 housing crisis, this darkly comedic story follows Cassie Fowler, a single mom and struggling realtor whose life goes off the rails when she witnesses a murder.

Jonathan Watson’s Arizona while an oversimplified comedic thriller as a premise on paper and page, is a far more intriguing and engaging final product. Although, unfortunately, and naively so doesn’t want to plunge into the dramatic depths to discover a far more promising and distinctive voice, only dipping its toes into a sea of prevalent social commentary.

Danny McBride shows terrific range with a seismic outlandish performance of muddled morality and chaotic nihilistic endurance. His terrific and versatile range is an

Second Opinion – Arizona (2018)

Arizona, 2018.

Directed by Jonathan Watson.

Starring Danny McBride, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kaitlin Olson, Luke Wilson, David Alan Grier, Lolli Sorenson, and Elizabeth Gillies.

Synopsis:

Set in the midst of the 2009 housing crisis, this darkly comedic story follows Cassie Fowler, a single mom and struggling realtor whose life goes off the rails when she witnesses a murder.

Jonathan Watson’s Arizona charges out the proverbial gate furious about 2006’s housing bubble burst, tying frustration and lies to financial ruin. Dystopian Western developments all boarded up and stripped down in an effort to lure cut-rate purchasers. Luke Del Tredici exploits a tumultuous period in recent American history, but as the credits roll, we’re left wondering why. What begins with slippery realtors ends on bloodshed by desperation. Bodies pile up, numbskullery motivates, practice makes far from perfect – but lost in the shuffle is consistent commentary on what disastrous nearsightedness brought us here. Halfway

Synopsis:

Set in the midst of the 2009 housing crisis, this darkly comedic story follows Cassie Fowler, a single mom and struggling realtor whose life goes off the rails when she witnesses a murder.

Set against the notorious financial housing crisis, Arizona (directed by longtime assistant director and frequent Danny McBride collaborator Jonathan Watson) poises itself to be one hell of a black comedy/slasher where the aforementioned comedian’s talent is funneled through a total sociopath determined to murder any witnesses to his accidental crime in a burst of, uncommon, rage (an uncredited Seth Rogen turning in a fun cameo as a weasel of a real estate company manager). Divorced working mom Cassie is present for the act of violence,

Sundance Review: ‘Arizona’ Starts Funny, Stays Dark, Stalls Out

It’s hard not to like Danny McBride. Since his first movie role in David Gordon Green’s All The Real Girls to his breakout dark comedy The Foot Fist Way and beyond, the performer operates at his own energetic speed, often elevating whatever he’s in. In Arizona, directed by McBride’s Vice Principals producer Jonathan Watson, the comedian is given plenty to play with early on and he makes the most it. Unfortunately, the majority of the material is worn out in the first thirty minutes, which leaves the final fifty-five.

Set in Arizona after the real estate bust, Cassie (a very game Rosemarie Dewitt) finds herself selling houses within nowhere developments to people with no better options. Having been tricked herself by a sleazy broker she now works for, she’s a woman stuck with a mortgage she can’t pay, a shitty ex-husband (Luke Wilson) and
