After Life (2019)
You will see nothing new in this Gervais show/manifesto, which is a shame.
Okay we get it. God doesn't exist, nihilism +++, Dogs are better than people; but the people in this show are all dire TV tropes- the sex worker with the heart of gold, Postman Pat- in the flesh, etc, so it's not a fair comparison is it?
Despite the effort to make Gervais' character come across as a kind, Narcissist with a conscience, the only character who meets this criteria is, in fact the Psychiatrist.
Gervais's character is a pathologically grief stricken Sociopath with no conscience. He happily kills (with kindness) his drug dealer, for what purpose? A sense of power, to see if he feels anything?
His workmates say he has a conscience, but don't be fooled this character would happily go out raping and murdering, if he could be bothered, which he can't, because he's lazy and you know, the mess. Who would clean that up?
Anyway, this show and the world has gone to the dogs
Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)
See this film!
I saw this movie last night in Hokitika. There was a queue outside, which caused comment enough amongst the locals, as this never happens. The cinema was packed with an amazing demographic of people, for example, on one side of me were toddlers with their Mums, on the other a lone hunter-type and behind me a group of retired farmer ladies. I think this speaks volumes on the draw of this film. To put it simply, it ticks all the right boxes. Everyone in Aotearoa (NZ) will know these characters in some form or another; from the gruff old bushman, to the earthy mother figure and the chillaxed cop. It is that familiarity that makes it more engrossing and funny. But not just here, its mix of subtle bathos and pathos will make it universally appealing, of that I am certain. In short: Good on ya, Taika! 'Marvellous' film!
