Surely what could have made a better reality-TV series – three teenagers from the big city, yet a strange kid without a friend, abandoned in the Scottish highlands and left the way back to civilization – works even better in the dark. ‘John Crazy started shooting from a distance from them. The risks are high, but the ironic half-character of Ninian Duff’s unexpected survival, the fall of these phenocentric hip-hop jams, improvised pyrotechnics and hallucinogenic rabbits, makes this indigent camp trip even more unforgettable.
The debut features go as follows, “Duke!” – or “Boys in the Wood”, when it was called the cult cult of the future when it won the Audience Awards at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival – serves as a standalone calling card for a talented yet crooked comedian, one without the slightest qualification about making a turn. Booklique Village has a bloody “The Mountain Has Eyes” – style hunting party into music-video director Duffer Ben Whitley as naughty and unaware as Guy Ritchie in the style section, bringing this totally unpredictable urban mood.
A tongue-in-cheek VHS promotional video instantly sets the film’s offbeat tune, creating a dark pitch called “Duke of Edinburgh Awards,” which is a waste of time for Scaly Pulse Dean (Ryan Gordon), Duncan (Ryan Gordon). (Louis Gribben) and William (Biraj Juneja). The latter may be his (latest) hip-hop handle, mentioned by DJ Beatrut and may be Jean’s breakout star, emphasizing the way John Boyega stole the not-so-different “Attack the Block” almost a decade ago.
With their harsh words and stone-throwing expressions, they represent the innocent images of these three so-called “spoiled youths” – the kind of slackers who deny common disciplinary action. Somewhere in the middle there is something immediately interesting about stranding these street-side characters, inappropriately ressed heck after designer tracksuits and spot-on outfits of hooded sweatshirts without cell reception, weeds or their mom reception, some listeners allow such problem solvers to “trick” society. Maybe – soon revealed the sinister motive behind their field trip
Soon the boys will not get out of the school van than to drop a sticker bomb of DJ Beetroot on a nearby rock. Meanwhile, his friends are too careless to notice all the missing-person flights on their missing sign – or the fourth passenger who traveled with them: a hopeless Square home-schooling case named Ian (Samuel Bottmal) for which his parents volunteered. Hopefully this will socialize their introverted son.
The chaperon of the trip, Mr. Carlyle (Jonathan Aris), gave the boys a paper map and a few initial directions and loosened them into the “wild” (basically, just a hill and a farm rolling). “Honestly, the whole thing is in danger.” “Honestly, I’m surprised they let teenagers do it.” Honestly, these kids are more annoyed than panicked by the challenge and so they are perfect for a few hours, when someone is aiming at them from a distance, studying these simple goals through a rifle scope, the youngsters can do nothing.
Soon, “Duke” makes his presence known (it’s executive Eddie Izzard wearing a pansy tartan kilt and torn skin mask), and he’s so vile that he sees no more threat than the classic loonie tune Josmite Sam. Cartoons. It is categorized in the most literal sense, since Duke and his wife (Georgie Glenn) have said some nonsense about maintaining the “integrity of the species.” They are very intimidating, but the situation is like a white family in “Get Out”: they are both armed, while the children have only a “very sharp thorn”.
“Gad Duked” doesn’t seem a bit embarrassing to be a fool and does a great job of evoking the unique blend of Duff film’s wide range of humor and horror-movie combinations. He clearly understands the timing of the jokes, both of which apply to the game cast’s continued fun antics (a few frustrated DPK jokes that can still handle laughter as a delivery) and no business of repetitive gags that aren’t fun at first, less on repetition (confusing local authorities. ” Like “bread thief”). Duff, especially clever to play with different parts of the frame, repeatedly planted a scattered attitude at the front to give some kind of ridiculous sparkle behind the characters.
From a comedy standpoint, it helps to make all of his characters so forgettable. They are not stupid at all, though in pure Darwinian language, one would doubt that half of them would fail in this particular adventure even if there were no humorous killers in the prologue. The incompetence around this kind of thing puts “Dude Duke” alongside “Biman” and “The Naked Song” from these classic Zucker and Abrahams movies and should appeal to lovers of old-fashioned lobro comedy, if they’ve taken some long hip-hop references. Agree to. After talking about it, those joke-induced headlines (any of them) will not deter you. Rest assured, they are the least fun thing about this otherwise rewarding gamble.
