Napoleon Dynamite

Viewed: 12 January 2005
Directed by:
Listed in: ,

There is something about this film. It might be too constructed, because of that I can’t trust it. It shows a unique world and in support of that world it doesn’t miss a beat. It’s very funny, relying on one-liners throughout. It lacks a conventional structure, the story is pretty weak and just there to serve the jokes. Perhaps that’s it, Napoleon Dynamite is too much like sketch comedy. It doesn’t go anywhere or try to say anything, it follows in the tradition of Caddyshack. Unlike Caddyshack Napoleon is not completely worthless. A lot is invested into the mise-en-scene and the world created is a delight.
