Sightseers

(2012)****
Chris and Tina, a very odd couple, take off for a sightseeing adventure. At the first stop Chris accidentally runs over and kills a man. Accident or not, you can see that he rather enjoyed it. Somewhere along the way they decide the world would do good to be rid of anyone who annoys them so their tour becomes more of a killing spree.


Tina is very simpleminded and takes everything she sees to a literal level. When Chris explains one killing as he was defending her honor she begins to look at killing as an acceptable thing to do. But her moral lines are quite different then Chris's, she begins to kill thinking he will find it attractive. To appreciate this film you first have to appreciate British humor which is very dry and not to everyone's liking. I thought it was brilliant.

It's so much more satisfying to go for quality not quantity.

This sounds like what the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour should've been like.

I saw this one in the off-season and thought it was troubling, but, yes, also brilliant.
