Bernie (out Aug 16) is an intriguing true story told by writer-director Richard Linklater as a mix between a documentary and a dark comedy. Set in a small town, everyone is talking about why a young, friendly funeral director (Jack Black) has become so close with a wealthy, elderly woman (Shirley MacLaine) who no one likes. Very interesting indeed. Grade: B+.
