Seeking a friend for the end of the world (2012)

A depressingly funny film where faced with the end of the world, humanity decides to go out with a whimper and a silly party hat while on a high rather than with a bang.

The road trip movie format provides most of the excellent vignettes of the last days that are just as depressing as they are funny. It's far better written than the romcom element.

Watch for: excellent storytelling. Watch as: a companion to Jimmy Corrigan: Smartest Kid in the World or Melancholia.
