Jo’s review published on Letterboxd:
What a delightful movie! Hunt for the Wilderpeople is so many things at once. It's really funny, it's heartfelt, it's crazy, it's dramatic and it's just a tremendous joy to watch.
With brilliant performances by... really everyone. Even the smaller roles are funny and memorable.
But there's one thing (at least for me) in particular that stands out: the soundtrack. It's such a cool combination of 80's synth and the typical orchestral soundtrack bits and it's just something different, not like almost every other movie soundtrack which sounds like they bought half a pound of soundtrack-slab, just because it was cheap.
Taika Waititi is an exciting film maker and I'm really looking forward to what he's got planned for Thor Ragnarok.
