Movie Reviews:

  • SWITCH.: ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’ has become the rare indie darling to make a splash at the U.S. box office, and Australian audiences would be wise to follow suit. It’s a comedy that is as sweet and unique as its main star, and points towards a bright future for disabled inclusivity in film.

  • nadjaclementine: > Heartwarming and sweet, though lacking a memorable plot to anchor it.
  • Ryan: Cinema cannot get much better than this. Brilliant.
  • CinemaSerf: I was a bit sceptical when I saw the casting for this – Shia LaBeouf trying to rehabilitate himself after his recent off-screen shenanigans with a heart-rending story about a lad with Down Syndrome? Well, how wrong was I? It is a an uplifting experience from start to finish. A brief appearance from Bruce Dern, a coating of of vaseline and away we go into a journey that sees Zak meet and travel with Tyler as they develop a bond that is truly joyful and convincing. You can tell that they both had fun making the film, the chemistry is palpable. Our family used to work closely with folks and their families coping with DS and the notion of restraining them for their own (and others’ good) in institutions was never far away; this escape and subsequent adventure demonstrates, albeit fictionally, that the human spirit is alive and well in everyone. Highly recommend this film.
