Paul Dano is on an island and he’s had it. The film starts with him preparing to kill himself, is what I’m saying. Not the most auspicious beginning for a film that is ostensibly a comedy. But wait, what’s this? Is someone else there? Has Daniel Radcliffe washed up on the beach and now Paul will have a deserted island friend? Well, sort of. See, Danny is dead. Sort of. Maybe. But regardless, Paul finds in Dan a reason to live, and a multi-purpose tool to help do it.
Perhaps one of the strangest films to come out this year, Swiss Army Man is also among the best. Listen to Chris, JC, and Richard describe it’s farty wonders.
