Wristcutters: A Love Story (2006)
I won’t fault you if you look at the title and declare that it’s not for you. Understandable. It’s a polarizing title that leads you to believe it will be a macabre wade into loveless abyss. You’re half right. Because while much of the movie is about people who have committed suicide who end up in an ironic purgatory that has them living worse versions of their lives AND they can’t smile a lot more of it is about finding those suited to you, makeshift families and the importance of hope. The last shot is a history book worthy last shot. It’s a dark and twisted love note to happiness.
