Swiss Army Man

Drama Adventure Comedy


 

A man lost on a desolate shore finds a body that washes up with the tide and they embark on a surreal adventure together.

There is something excruciating about watching "Swiss Army Man". You want to love it as much as it loves itself, but it won't quite let you. The premise starts out as promising then gets bogged in pathos before going completely bonkers. The movie is almost carried by its weird originality and a masterful soundtrack, while the central buddy relationship is creatively imagined. Despite the lead's best efforts, the fart jokes start to reek. Playing dead.
