One of the most bizarre releases in a very long time, Swiss Army Man pairs Paul Dano with Daniel Radcliffe for the story of a suicidal man who while stranded on an island befriends a talking corpse he finds washed ashore. Even more strange than its outline suggests, this is a warped combination of earnest romance, juvenile humour, mindboggling surrealism and heartbreaking emotion that somehow fits together seamlessly. Radcliffe is hilariously game as the farting, child-like dead body of the title, but Dano is the heart of the movie with his sympathetic and wide-eyed portrayal of depression. A joyous and unashamedly weird film that grows both more emotional and more odd as it goes on.
