About this movie

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends, and ultimately go on an epic adventure that will bring Hank back to the woman of his dreams. Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

After sitting through 30 minutes of a horrible spin off of Castaway, we had to walk out. The plot is simply that the main character hallucinates, replacing Wilson from Castaway by a zombie that farts frequent and gets random errections. Maybe if I ate a bunch of pot brownies, the film would've been mildly entertaining, but it was just incredibly stupid and disturbing.

This movie may seem to be just be a horrible comedy and a one star to some people, but it made me think a lot about life and how it makes us think and feel and leaving me crying at the end. I loved this movie it makes me feel happy to be alive and social with my family and friends. Even though the plot is dumb it can make you feel for the characters knowing they believe they will die and no one will care. The phone ends up being a strong symbol between the character being their biggest motivation for home and and some one to care.

This is probably hands down one of the weirdest movies I've ever seen in my life; but it's been absolutely pivotal also. There are some deep childhood trauma triggers about love and acceptance; and somewhere between the fart jokes, I found self-reflection and healing. This movie will always hold fond memories for me.
