Blankments’s review published on Letterboxd:
Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a very sweet movie. Waititi directs with a magical touch that never forgets how important the two leads' bond is to giving the film the heart it needs. A very funny film that's not afraid to get heartfelt, Neill and Dennison shine with performances that resound strongly throughout the dramatic-comedic spectrum. The editing team is also worth noticing, as the editing in this film is always fun, either accenting dramatic moments or making silly moments even more fun. Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a massive improvement for Waititi, and one of the most fun films of 2016. Definitely worth seeking out.
