Highly Suspect Reviews: Hunt for the Wilderpeople

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.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
