joey’s review published on Letterboxd:
HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE is a movie I dug the hell out of.
The characters are so brilliantly WRITTEN and LAYERED that you care about them INSTANTLY.
The PLOT, although simple compliments the movie brilliantly as the HUMOUR ENRICHES it.
Oh yeah, the HUMOUR is absolutely BRILLIANT.
I was in HYSTERICS for the majority of the runtime.
It's so simple but the way the characters pull it off is AMAZING.
I had SO MUCH FUN watching HUNT FOR THE WILDER PEOPLE and will definitely be watching this movie again before it leaves my theatre and the BLU RAY is getting put onto my pre-order list as soon as I'm home.
PLEASE see HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE and SUPPORT INDEPENDENT FILM MAKING.
PS - I now have full interest in TAITI WAITKI and his next project, THOR RAGNAROK which I had ZERO interest in before this film.
