Stare at this picture of Raymond Carver long enough and you’ll want to start drinking, too.

Everything Must Go

Will Ferrell adds more serio than comic to this seriocomic tale of suburban angst. It's based on a short story by Raymond Carver, who also inspired Robert Altman's intermittently great Short Cuts. Ferrell is an alcoholic salesman whose life hits rock bottom when he's fired by his boss and divorced by his wife on the same day. Since the wife has thrown out all his belongings and changed the locks on the house, our protagonist takes up residence on the front lawn. The story is whisper thin, but first-time writer-director Dan Rush finds the right indie film tone for it all. FULL REVIEW: A low-key Will Ferrell dips his toe in the melancholy suburbs of Raymond Carver by Devin D. O’Leary (5/12/2011). See also: I Kind of Like to Watch (Not So Instantly): Source Code, Everything Must Go by Sam Adams (09/22/2011). 96 minutes R.
