Taika Waititi. Not the easiest name to roll of the tongue. However, I suspect to film and comedy nerds, his name will be oft-mentioned in the coming years, if it isn’t already. This being the guy who wrote, directed, and starred in the recent and astounding What We Do in the Shadows. This being the guy who is directing Thor: Ragnarok. And even if all that hadn’t happened, he deserves full credit for writing and directing this film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople. I’ll stop my effusive praise here and let you just listen to Chris and Herman on the review, but this story of a little fat kid and his friendship with Sam Neill as they are chased through the New Zealand mountains (the bush) by an obsessed social worker falls into our ‘best of the year’ list.
