Joseph Fiennes in wet leather. Winona's character smoking a joint. Metallica! Reenactments of the beloved JATO Rocket Car, Lawyer Aloft, etc., with surprising twists. Finn's movie is good. Sundance audiences laughed the whole way through, and so did I! It's hilarious.
"engagingly wonky comedy" The Calgary Sun... "stoners... end up in a catastrophe so unlikely that a kind of insane logic informs it" Roger Ebert... "a kind of high-brow screwball comedy"... popWatch:... "At Sundance, an overflow crowd at the Eccles Theatre". Film Stew "The enraptured audience stuck around for the wisdom of the filmmaker and cast in the Q&A afterwards... You can pity our species, because this has "hit" written all over it" GreenCINE Daily... "A corporate satire? a mystery? an existential comedy about the nature of random life and human existence? ...a wacky buddy-road-romance movie?" Quirky Cinematical review.
Michael Burrows (Joseph Fiennes) is a brilliant but overly cautious forensic detective, who turns his fascination with the Darwin Awards into an avocation. He is paired with Siri Taylor (Winona Ryder) a take-no-prisoners insurance claims investigator. Together they embark on a road trip to see if they can better understand the motivation of potential Darwin Awards recipients.
