Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Written and directed by Taika Waititi. Starring Julian Dennison, Sam Neill, Rachel House, and Rhys Darby
Easily my most anticipated film of the Tribeca Film Festival this year. Sure, Hunt for the Wilderpeople looks overly silly and most people may not be into the brand of humor from New Zealander Taika Waititi. But after watching his previous film, What We Do In The Shadows, I will watch anything directed by Waititi. Hunt for the Wilderpeople made its premiere at Sundance Film Festival and has received its share of positive reviews. The trailer is full of great moments and laughs, but with Waititi’s knack for the comedic moments of films it’s almost a guarantee that the best moments have yet to be seen. After Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Waititi will be directing Thor: Ragnorak, taking place in the 3rd phase of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.
