Movie: Igby Goes Down

'Igby Goes Down' is a very intelligent and unnervingly funny movie which showcases human psychology in it's weirdest forms. The protagonist, Igby, is a troubled teenager from a dysfunctional family. He asks the most intelligent questions, cracks the funniest jokes, and gets beaten up by everyone he knows. How he deals with (or does not deal with) his family, and growing up, is what makes up the movie. The ending was a pleasant surprise to me, since I expected the worst (from the title).
Definitely recommended watching.
My Rating: 8.5/10.

Quotes from the movie:

Igby: "If heaven is such a wonderful place, then how was getting crucified such a big sacrifice?"

Igby: "I'm drowning in assholes."

Sookie: "You have a huge crush on me, don't you?"
Igby: "Fuck off."

D.H.: "I believe, that certain people in life are meant to fall by the wayside; to serve as warnings to the rest of us; sign posts along the way."
Igby: "To where?"

Tommy: "Basically, it's like reverse Darwinism. A situation in which a lesser evolved species is more equipped to survive than a more evolved creature. Which, if you think about it, isn't really reverse Darwinism so much as big picture Darwinism, if you will..."

Igby: "The thought that I'm going to live my life without ever having told her to fuck off, is pretty goddamn infuriating"
