What To Watch on Instant Watch: Bernie

I'm not a huge Richard Linklatter fan, but this ended up being one of my favorite movies that I saw last year. Mortician Bernie Tiede (Jack Black) befriends lonely (and controlling) widow Marjorie Nugent (Shirley MacLaine). When her friendship becomes too much to bear, he kills her, but no one in town want to see him do time. It's Jack Black's best performance, and the movie resonates with warmth and biting humor.
