A hopeless man stranded in the wilderness befriends a dead body and together they go on a surreal journey to get home.
After reading about Swiss Army Man when it was touring the festival circuit, I was instantly intrigued. A movie based around Paul Dano befriending Daniel Radcliffe’s farting, erection-sporting corpse just sounded too weird to be true. So imagine my delight when the first trailer appeared, and it’s even weirder than I anticipated! I mean, maybe if you mashed up Castaway, Where The Wild Things Are, and Weekend At Bernie’s, you’d get something sort of like this, but damn, this movie is already in a league all its own. I’m just so impressed with it already that I feel like no other movie I see this year, and possibly even next year, will be able to measure up to it. It’s very difficult for me not to throw out all movie critic integrity and say it’s my favourite film of the year. It certainly has the best trailer.
Swiss Army Man comes out June 17, 2016.
