Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story ★★★★★

“Life is like a parody of your favorite song. You think you know all the words and then…surprise, you don’t know anything.

Weird: The Al Yankovich Story is a true tour de force. Its an incredible soulful biopic that thoroughly explores the life of one of music’s most important musician. Daniel Radcliffe pours his soul into this performance & quite frankly deserves an Oscar for Best Actor. I clapped, I cheered, & I cried throughout. Genuinely one of the year’s best films, maybe even the very best film I’ve seen this decade.

Okay, but in all seriousness this is legitimately one of the funniest films of the year, and it’s an ingenious parody of the modern music biopic in the same vein as Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox story. The gravely narration, the overly dramatic acting, the extremely sappy musical score  and the fact that all of it is played 100% straight is just perfect.
