    Heh... 'Hank Thompson'. Try to picture 'Castaway' as re-imagined by Michel Gondry after watching 'Weekend at Bernie's'. 3 years 10 months ago

    The most surprising film I have seen in a long time. Who knew that a fart joke can actually sustain the entire run time of a feature length film and make you feel so many emotions. Going in, I skimmed a few reviews and felt that they were overplaying the emotional elements of the film and that about ten minutes the fart joke would be overplayed. Nope. This a briskly paced, well composed, greatly acted and masterfully directed piece of cinema. Perhaps due to the over-reliance on twists in modern cinema but I was anticipating no fewer than three different twists and was so happy (well...sad) when it ended as it did. It never overstayed its welcome and manages to be heart-warmingly funny through the very end. 4 years 2 months ago

    Swiss Army Man is an absurdist film about a mentally disturbed man falling in love with an all-purpose, farting corpse (Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe respectively), drawing from both absurdist fiction and magical realism, at once scatological and existential, Castaway meets Weekend at Bernie's, with more than a touch of Be Kind Rewind... And it's kind of a musical too. At the very least, my recommendation should lead you to something you've never seen before. Through a game of contrasts between the crass and the beautiful, the film offers a meditation on the things we do not value - garbage, bodily functions, people - and asks... why not? Dano's character learns to celebrate life by connecting to a dead stranger - with which he identifies - only now learning what it might mean to be alive, especially in the ways we take for granted. The filmmakers call it a "fart drama", and you won't understand what that means until you see it. 3 years 8 months ago
