2013. USA. Directed by Eddie Mullins. In this apocalyptic comedy, a pair of deadbeats spend their days breaking into off-season vacation homes in the Catskills, living off stocked pantries and destroying property as a lark. Dirty Fred has a penchant for whiskey and women, while the pugnacious Bruho destroys any car in his path to curb the nation’s reliance on peak oil—which is bound to bring about the world’s end before too soon. The story unfolds in daily episodes, as the duo brings acolytes into their ranks and as the gang moves from one squat to the next. This clever debut feature puts forth an irreverent refusenik mantra: in the age of global warming, economic crises, and government shutdowns, why not “drop out, break in, pig out”? 91 min.
