Synopsis

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 realizes 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.

Our Take

7.7
Yasmine Joy Labagnoy

Probably the weirdest film you’ll ever see. Paul Dano plays a borderline suicidal man who befriends a farting corpse that washed up from the sea as played by Daniel Radcliffe. It’s an adventurous, witty and hilarious film yet it is filled with discreet and very deep lessons about society and norms. The soundtrack is so charmingly unique as well, it’s a definite must-watch for anyone looking for a refreshing comedy.

Probably the most polarizing film I’ve ever come across. Some people hate it, others stop stop watching after the first 10 minutes, but some people (like me) think it’s one of the best movies ever made. Its raw and weird emotions some how latch onto your emotions and it’s perfect. It’s hard to recommend this to my family or friends though, either you will love it or you will hate it.

It’s a very slow movie. Funny, but hard to sink your teeth into.

This film is one of my favourites of all time, purely because you won’t find any weird premise executed as well as Swiss Army Man has. I never thought I could be in love with such a ridiculous premise, but I am. The dialogue is fantastic, and the soundtrack even better! 5 stars from me.

This movie is FU**ING weird! It’s so creepy. But I love it.
