SWISS ARMY MAN
When we meet Hank (Paul Dano), he's stranded on a desert island. He's been there so long that boredom and isolation (described on items he's sent to sea) have driven him to suicide. Just as he's about to take that final step, he gets an unexpected companion: Manny (Daniel Radcliffe), a corpse who washes up on shore.
Swiss Army Man is uneven: thoughtful and funny at times, juvenile at others. The mix doesn't always work, but it is something different.
Overall grade: B-
