I’m ready for the lunacy.
The newest trailer for Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano’s self described “fart drama” Swiss Army Man just released and it is even more bizarre than the last. In it we see the boner of Daniel Radcliffe’s talking corpse act as a compass to guide Paul Dano home, karate chopping various thing with Daniel Radcliffe’s talking corpse, traveling over water via farts from Daniel Radcliffe’s talking corpse, as well as various other equally insane actions.
I’ll be honest, I’ve seen a lot of weird movies in my life time, but this looks like it may be the weirdest. I’m so insanely intrigued by this film’s premise, and I have absolutely no idea how it will play out or sustain itself for the length of a full film. Hell, I still don’t even really know what it’s about. It almost looks certifiable, and I mean that as a compliment.
Check it out for yourself (NSFW warning):
Swiss Army Man releases June 24th and is directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. The film is being distributed by A24, which has distributed some of my favorite films of the year so far, it’s almost an assurance of quality.
Fun fact, the directors of Swiss Army Man also directed the music video for Turn Down For What, which makes so much sense in retrospect:
