Vengeance 2022

B.J. Novak’s feature directorial debut, “Vengeance 2022,” doesn’t start out like you would B.J. Expect Novak’s feature directorial debut. It’s an image from a horror movie, a dying figure in a dark and empty oil field, clutching a cell phone, desperately trying to get a signal. For a moment, it looks like producer Jason Blum has Novak pull a Jordan Peele, subverting his comic comfort zone and venturing into genre territory. But shortly after that, when we meet Novak, he’s into a Neil LaBute-do with his friend, dishing out sexual conquests, talking but not really talking, of course. Does not listen, and “one hundred percent,” says a lot, to fill the silence. Novak, who also wrote the screenplay, plays Ben, a staff writer for “The New Yorker” (going so well, people keep saying he writes for “New York Magazine” and he can’t help it. but cannot improve). But he knows that real cultural penetration comes from podcasting, and an opportunity lands in his lap: He gets a call from a crazy Texan, who tells him between sobs, “Your girlfriend’s dead.” The dead girl wasn’t really his girlfriend; She was “a girl in my phone,” a casual, occasional hookup that described her relationship with her family in a completely different way. But Ben is actually a people-pleaser, so before he knows it, he’s on a plane to Texas for her funeral, and thrust into an unexpected crush on a girl he barely knew ( “She loved music, I know”).
