 There are two movies named Bernie. Both of them killed a friend. One, the Canadian one, is about the most loathsome person in the world, an alcoholic, trigger happy romantic who helps no one and hates his life. All his actions and all the people about him make you feel low and scatalogical. The other, the American one from Carthage Texas, is about a man who loves life and helps everyone and does good. All the people interviewed are admirable, and have timeless wisdom and character, and one wishes one could learn more from them. One leaves the American Bernie by Richard Linklater feeling uplifted like one feels after reading the Reader's Digest compendia about the greatness of America. But the compassion for the wife is somewhat tarnished. The current Bernie is highly recommended.
