Sundance 2016: 'Swiss Army Man' Review

In my Sundance preview for The New Republic, I said of films like Swiss Army Man, "Going to a festival means sometimes taking a flyer on a movie with an intriguing premise that could end up being really great or absolutely terrible." Well, I was sorta right on both fronts: This is an audacious, ambitious movie that doesn't quite work. I reviewed it for Screen International.
