Swiss Army Man

This exceedingly corporeal, existential comedy stars Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) as a suicidal loser stuck on a deserted island. Hope arrives in the form of a dead body (Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe), which washes up on the shore. Our protagonist befriends the flatulent corpse, which proves incredibly useful as a jet ski, a firestarter, a grappling hook and other impossible, gas-powered tools. What starts out as a ridiculously gross joke continues to be one--but with an added layer of Spike Jonze-style surrealism. Think Cast Away crossed with Weekend At Bernie's with a dose of Being John Malkovich ... then give up, because you still can't imagine where this oddly touching tale of love, friendship, mortality and farts is going. 95 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 9/8)
