"The farting dead body” movie of Sundance

“Swiss Army Man” opens with a shot of an exasperated Hank (Paul Dano) preparing to hang himself on a deserted island. Bored, alone and without hope, a look of astonishment surfaces on Hank’s face as a body (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore before his impending suicide.

Desperately searching the body, Hank soon discovers that it is without life and is very flatulent. Through a series of odd and spectacular events, the body comes to life and the two go on a “road trip” of epic proportions to get Hank back home.

The score for this film, while simplistic, is by far the most inventive I’ve heard in years. Directors Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheinert and cinematographer Larken Seiple craft captivating visuals, and Daniel Radcliffe gives his best performance since “Harry Potter.”

A Poignant Journey Hiding Behind Juvenile Humor

For those who say that originality is dead and that there are too many remakes, reboots and superhero movies out there - by all means, please point them to Swiss Army Man. If you can dig deeper beyond the juvenile humor of flatulence and erections, you will find a film full of heart with a depth not often achieved by many films - and that in itself is reason to watch.

Paul Dano plays Hank, who opens the film on a seemingly small, rocky deserted island, ready to commit suicide after having been alone (and likely out of food) for so long. Just before he does, a body washed up on shore and he takes it as a sign. The body (played by Daniel Radcliffe) soon begins farting. And not just a little - but like a ton - and then Dano rides the corpse across the ocean like a jet ski. Okay - if you c...

Swiss Army Man - Movie Review

"If my best friend hides his farts from me then what else is he hiding from me, and why does that make me feel so alone?"

Never would I expect a farting talking corpse would've turn out to be a good movie. Even on paper, this idea sounds awful, but it's one of those things that manages to work out. I always hear people complain that movies just ain't that original anymore, with the endless reboots and the unnecessary squeals. And then you get something like this that's so different. Something so bizarre, weird and original that it's executed in a way that it actually works as a movie.

There's something deeply beautiful and very relatable about "Swiss Army Man" that I know a lot of people won't agree. It isn't for everybody. I mean, just look at the reviews for Su...

Unbelievably Entertaining!

'Swiss Army Man' is one of the most awesomely unique and original films I've ever seen. The premise alone is entirely fresh and wildly inventive. There is absolutely nothing else like it. How often do you hear anyone say that about a film? A hyper-creative plot unfolds with great characterization, arresting cinematography, infectious music, and an unpredictable sense of wonderment. This "buddy" adventure breaks the mold on expectations with it's shifting tones and outright bizarre visuals, but it stays completely grounded and emotionally involving thanks to the precision of character. Dano and Radcliffe carry the entire film with outstanding performances. Companionship is conveyed in it's most delicate state. One is using the other to survive, while the other is using the former t...
