Bernie (2011)
Based on a strange true story, this pitch-black comedy concerns a beloved small-town mortician (Jack Black) who befriends an ornery widow (Shirley MacLaine) and then becomes implicated in her death. Director Richard Linklater incorporates people and places from the real events into the film, lending it an uncanny documentary-esque edge, and it features what could be Black's best performance.
