Anywhere USA: An American Portrait (Cinevolve Studios/MVD DVD)


Picture: B-     Sound: C     Extras: B     Main Program: C+



From its success at the Sundance Film Festival, Anywhere USA is a series of shorts skits that make fun of American culture that you can find anywhere.  Topics include American stereotypes, prejudices, racism, values and more...  To feature America's worst at their best in a comic parodies and how Americans can laugh at their own idiosyncrasies.  Watch a group of amateur actors as they show you what it is to be in America.
This film features 3 skits that are relate to each other but unconnected at the same time, Penance, Loss, and Ignorance.  A story of a man who is kicked out his house and his wife discovers internet porn, an 8 year-old girl who accidentally eats 'adult' brownies, middle-age man white man and his sudden interest in black man.  There are one or two things which any American can relate to...
Get ready for moustaches, RC racing midgets, drugs, the tooth fairy, and middle-age men with mid-life crisis.  The film makes fun of various aspects within the American culture, the irony that a man's penance after cheating on his wife is to watch her have an internet affair, how American drug culture has led to the loss of American youth's innocence, and all the meanwhile any neatly trimmed bearded white man is automatically given life of leisure to contemplate his own ignorance without realizing he is a racist.  Extras include Director's commentary, making of featurette, Jacksonville Film Festival Acceptance speech, photos, coming attractions and trailers.
