One of taikas best. Does have some pacing issues though
Beautiful and funny coming of age movie with all Waititiness you're gonna love. Big recommendation!
It’s not like most movies that has a simple predictable plot and bland characters. You really feel for the characters and the plot.
Another simultaneously heart warming and breaking, classic from Watiti
The haka thriller scene alone was enough to make this amazing. I feel like Taika Waititi can pretty well do no wrong
Taika Waititi has such a great way of telling funny stories that also hit very well on an emotional level. Boy is such a fun watch.
One of my favorite movies. It’s funny and imaginative and sad and sweet all at once. Taika is a brilliant director/actor. 10/10
Heartwrenching story with some humour. Explores family relationships, grief, acceptance and coming-of-age. On the slow side.
Just shows the unique sense of humor that Waititi possesses. It really feels like you are experiencing his childhood first hand. Great film!
Incredible storytelling. Makes you return to a childhood you didn’t even have.
