Movie Diary 6/27/2016)

Swiss Army Man (Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheinert, 2016). Paul Dano is shipwrecked on a desert island, Daniel Radcliffe is the flatulent corpse that keeps him company. There aren’t many movies like this one, which makes it pretty zingy to watch -if not in the memory (we’ll see about that), but certainly from scene to wacky scene. (full review 7/1)

The Legend of Tarzan (David Yates, 2016). Alexander Skarsgaard takes the role, and even cultivates a jungle yell. Somebody supplied some Tarantino-esque dialogue (co-screenwriter Craig Brewer?), and needless to say the slant this time is decidedly anti-colonialist. Elsewhere, all is CGI. (full review 7/1)
