Wristcutters: A Love Story

(Comcast Free Movies) A sweetly dark road movie about suicides stuck in a Limbo that resembles the industrial outskirts of Los Angeles. Writer-director Goran Dukic’s debut feature works like a deadpan charm for much of its running time, and even if it gets cluttered and obvious toward the end, it’s hard to hate a movie where Tom Waits essentially gets to play God. Starring Patrick Fugit, Shannyn Sossamon, and Shea Whigham. (R; runs through Sept. 30)
