TV & FILM

When I'm not writing hilarious articles on Egotastic I work in the film and television industry and I can tell you that it is pretty bleak for an independent filmmaker. There is no money for truly independent and original films. That's because investors will never see a return on their investment. The only movies that make any money are superhero films, sci-fi franchises, sequels, and remakes of popular films. So, anything original usually can't get an audience. But every once in a while a truly unique film rises above the fray. In this case I'm talking about Swiss Army Man. Paul Dano stars as a man stuck on an isolated island who is going to do himself in until a corpse washes up on shore. It's Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter himself. Only he's kind of like a zombie whose body can be used for different tasks. For example, his boners work as a compass. He also farts a lot. They strike up an unlikely friendship that might just save them both.
I can't wait to see this movie. It pissed off a lot of pretentious people at Sundance but it also won the best directing award for directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. Amazing.
