- What We Do In The Shadows was writer/director Taika Waititi’s previous film and the winner of the Audience Award at LIFF28. Unusually for me, it was a film I saw three times in the cinema and thought it got better each time.
- Everybody loves it. Until very recently Wilderpeople had 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, meaning it hadn’t received a negative review from any critics. It’s now dropped to 98% but that’s still ‘Certified Fresh‘. On Letterboxd (“a social network for sharing your taste in film”) it has been one of the highest rated films of the year.
- Taika Waititi is also directing Thor: Ragnarok (2017) and found time to make this short film, possibly the best entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet:
Hunt For The Wilderpeople is screening daily at Hyde Park Picture House from Friday 23rd September.
One thought on “3 Reasons To See…Hunt For The Wilderpeople”
Right on all three reasons. And there is a 4th: it is a canine movie, Tupac and Zag. Dog owners note though, it is a PG [Pet Guidance].
