Bobcat Goldthwait made a name for himself as a wonked-out supporting actor in movies like the Police Academy franchise and a funny-voiced stand-up comic who pulled no punches on stage. The unlikely canon he’s crafted behind the camera has been no less controversial and engaging. His latest film as a writer-director, the bold, ballsy, and darkly comedic social satire God Bless America, centers on Frank (Joel Murray), a loveless and terminally ill middle-aged guy who hits the road to wipe out a snotty, entitled teenager he glimpses on a reality TV show, and in the process crosses paths with Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), a 16-year-old accomplice who turns out to be even more murderously motivated than him. I had a chance to speak to Goldthwait one-on-one recently, about his movie, American cultural decay and how he’s decidedly different than his protagonist. The conversation is excerpted over at ShockYa, so click here for the fun read.
