Swiss Army Man (2016) Film Review

What the… what did I just watch? A film about Hank (Paul Dano) who appears to be stranded on a beach somewhere when a dead body, Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up. He uses this body not only to survive, but to get him back to civilisation. Only… what?

This is magnificently weird, and I was surprised that I actually loved it. Well, most of it. It had that wonderful quirky US Independent film feel, and I was unsure if I was living in a very strange reality or the mysterious world of a delusional man –  and I didn’t care. And then it ended, and I really didn’t like the end at all. I felt like the world I was inhabiting was ruined, and I was left feeling that I just didn’t like the film, and that’s not true. I really did like it, just not the end bit.
