I still don't know how to embed trailers, but this website has a link to the trailer, and also a scene from the movie.

It's getting very limited theatrical release, but I gather it's doing all the streaming stuff.

My question:  Where did Jerrod Carmichael learn to direct a movie?  This thing is solid, especially considering the tightrope act that directing a movie about two guys who are planning a double suicide must be.  There was a pervasive uneasiness, but at the same time an ease and chemistry between the two characters that made you believe they'd known each other forever.  And a layer of geniality over all of it. 

I just loved both of them, and Christopher Abbott broke my heart while also making me laugh out loud.  I really want to be friends with the two of them, just hanging out, which makes their misery that much sadder. 

Obviously it's not a movie for everyone, and I had qualms, but decided to trust it, and am glad I did.  Also, the film was shot in 35mm, and looks lovely.  And the soundtrack is spot on, including the diegetic use of "Give me back that filet-o-fish, give me that fish" in a very unexpected way.
