Review: Mindhorn Is the perfect summer comedy

Mindhorn is one of those movies that only works for viewers who are open to it. As a person who is very open to the sense of humor on display here, I found Mindhorn to be one of the most boldly original movies to grace screens thus far in 2017. And it doesn't hurt that the movie comes from one half of the mastermind team behind The Mighty Boosh.

Mindhorn review

A washed-up TV star comes out of retirement in this loose but very funny British comedy starring Julian Barratt of The Mighty Boosh.

Film review: Mindhorn

Mindhorn is consistently laugh-out-loud entertaining.

TVO reviews: Mindhorn

Our roving reporter, Mog, has been lucky enough to see Mindhorn twice. The first time she was so absorbed in the film she forgot to make any notes. That probably tells you all you need to know (about both the film and her). On the second run, she was able to remember why she was there; here's her review.

The Philanthropist review

Across the board, supposedly soul-searching scenes often come to sound more like shallow, self-centred millennial whines than the intended existential angst.

Review: The Philanthropist

The audience liked it, and though it won't be remembered as one of the year's great plays, it was good to see a work by a classic playwright in a new production with a cast not used to this form.

The Philanthropist review

This is dated beyond belief and either needs urgent freshening up or leaving it to its past.
