Bernie is an amazing movie and Jack Black is incredible in it. He perfectly represented this Southern stereotype that not many people know of, the effeminate and closeted church deacon. Every church has one and everyone loves him, especially in small towns. This story is about a character named Bernie who is a caring man who puts everyone before himself that let his inner demons briefly take control of his life which leads him down a dark road. It’s streaming on Netflix right now and you’ll be doing yourself a favor by watching it. Jack Black deserves at least an Academy Award nomination for this .
