Jungle pits Daniel Radcliffe against nature, with one of the grossest scenes of the year

B-

Many of the most successful entries in the man-vs.-nature genre tend to be true-life accounts, probably because there’s something especially affecting about knowing someone actually went through the ordeal you’re witnessing. Films like Into The Wild, Rescue Dawn, and Kon-Tiki derive an additional thrill from the…

The Academy should consider the farty boner corpse and other frugal effects work

Swiss Army Man, otherwise known (around these parts, anyway) as Farty Boner Corpse, isn’t what people tend to think of as a “special effects movie.” They think of it, quite accurately, as that gross-out Sundance comedy featuring Daniel Radcliffe as a talking, flatulent, sometimes aroused cadaver who befriends a…

Daniel Radcliffe’s robot boner reveals itself in exclusive Swiss Army Man clip

It’s been four months since Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe’s profoundly puerile (and possibly just profound) Swiss Army Man triumphantly jet-ski-farted its way into theaters. Now, the movie is about to reach a wider (if still distinctly niche) market, arriving on Blu-ray tomorrow in all its corpse-lugging glory. To…

Daniel Radcliffe joins Zachary Quinto in cartel drama, We Do Not Forget

Daniel Radcliffe poses as a skinhead in the unsettlingly relevant Imperium

Early press for writer-director Daniel Ragussis’ feature debut Imperium largely concentrated on one thing: the “holy shit” factor of Daniel Radcliffe as a white supremacist. And it is unsettling to see him spouting racial slurs, giving Nazi salutes, and wearing a white power T-shirt as undercover FBI agent Nate…

There’s a real art to making a fake, farty Daniel Radcliffe corpse

It says a lot about Daniel Radcliffe’s screen career that portraying a hyper-flatulent corpse in the way-out-there indie flick Swiss Army Man, written and directed by the duo of Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, only counts as the second most memorable role he’s ever played in films. Radcliffe’s character, Manny, may…

Daniel Radcliffe might pull a Harrison Ford and return as Harry Potter someday

Because nothing good is ever left to rest, Daniel Radcliffe has said there’s a chance he could one day return to the role of Harry Potter. Radcliffe issued this caveat-filled statement in an interview with Britain’s Radio Times. “It would depend on the script,” he told the magazine. “The circumstances would have to be…

Menacing models and farty boner corpses make it a weird weekend for movies

This weekend, moviegoers can celebrate the 4th of July a few days early with Independence Day: Resurgence, Roland Emmerich’s belated sequel to his own 1996 summer smash. Or, if they’re feeling adventurous, they can opt for something a little wilder, a weirder, a little…fartier. Converting the A.V. Club set into their…
