Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Don't know if it was the subtitles or just watching in a quieter frame of mind, but I noticed this time each slip of the knife when things quiet down and Ricky shares stories from his past, stories of genuine horror.

I don't know that they interlaced perfectly with all the good-natured goof-trooping, but Taika's struggle was ever to find the balance between melancholy and mischievous.

Wilderpeople
doesn't find it as well as Boy or Shadows, but its adventure vibes, lovable rogues' gallery, and lush New Zealand greenery help to induct Waititi to the Club of the Golden Three regardless.
