Swiss Army Man

Paul Dano (Love & Mercy), stranded in the wilderness, makes friends with the dead corpse of Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in this bonkers castaway comedy that scored first-time feature filmmakers Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert a directing award at Sundance 2015.

"Alone on a tiny deserted island, Hank has given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a dead body washes ashore, and he soon realises it may be his last opportunity to escape certain death. Armed with his new 'friend' and an unusual bag of tricks, the duo go on an epic adventure to bring Hank back to the woman of his dreams.

"Music video gurus The Daniels, a.k.a. Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, craft a wholly original debut feature bursting with limitless creativity both in content and form. Their consistently surprising script spans a wide range of emotions: from the ridiculously absurd to a touching exploration of what it means to be human." (Sundance Film Festival)

This movie wears its weirdness as a badge of honor - as well it should.

A ridiculously infantile film, one that flatters itself by intimating a deeper comment about suppressed masculinity or romantic passivity.

Isn’t for everyone. But the story is astoundingly original.

It's coarse and it's stupid, but it is, thanks mostly the two good performances and some stylish use of music and editing, a little bit moving.

A kind of Weekend at Bernie's meets Warm Bodies by way of Cast Away...

There are times when this mindbending bromance actually achieves a twisted tenderness. There are also times when you'd like to ride Manny's farts to the nearest exit. It's your call.

We dont usually call a film defiant. After all, to defy audiences or cinema itself would be self-defeating. But there are many ways film can defy us. For example, it can ignore the basic logic of storytelling and blur the boundaries of reality and fantasy. Or it can boldly go into places where polite people do not tread and then step back and laugh at us...

Swiss Army Man Imagine a film mashed between ‘Cast Away’ and ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’, with hints to ‘Ruby Sparks’, ‘E.T.’, ‘Lost’ & ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’. It’s a real emotional film that that begs the viewer to rethink relationships and look at themselves in a new light. It was lighthearted, intense, strange and beautiful all at varying times. A great watch...

I absolutely loved Swiss Army Man. Such a wonderful and hilarious film about a farting corpse that learns about life, love and loneliness from a hopeless man stranded in the wilderness. The best acting I've seen from Daniel Radcliffe. I was trying really hard to control my laughter at the beginning of the film. Grade: A-
