Daniel Radcliffe on Swiss Army Man: 'People fixate on the farting'

From a recent The Guardian interview"

"You can’t give an accurate impression of Swiss Army Man in three minutes. And people fixate on the farting, which makes you want to go: “Yeah, but it’s also really beautiful and weird, and there’s nothing else like it.”


To tell you the truth, I completely forgot about the film since I first saw it back in Park City. It did end up getting a release date this summer and was met with lukewarm reviews. Take away and you still have a somewhat original concept, a talking corpse movie - but with not enough substance to truly warrant a directing award at Sundance. I met the directing team behind it, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinbert, quirky, cool guys that supposedly want to remake "White Chicks." By the way, I'm all for that idea.




An excerpt from my review of "Swiss Army Man" at Sundance:

"The directing award went to the directing duo behind the most polarizing film of the fest Swiss Army Man. Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert won the award for a movie that Twitch Film’s Jason Gorber called “The Citizen Kane of fart joke movies.” If that doesn’t interest you at all then steer far away from this movie starring Daniel Radcliffe as a dead, farting corpse and Paul Dano as a distraught man stranded in the middle of a dessert Island. They somehow form a friendship and learn to help each other in the process. Radcliffe’s corpse is used as a jet ski ride whenever he farts, on the other hand Dano tries to teach his compadre about the joy of life by dressing up like a a girl and putting the moves on good ol’ Harry Potter. Not much else can be said, just sit back and let the ridiculousness of this movie drop your jaw down to the floor."
