A village sniper puts life in perspective
25 October 2010 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

How does Ianucci operate? Well, that's the question. I'd say it's by dislocating implicitness, by making the invisible that is our symbolic world visible, for just a moment. What appears is cultural contingency relativity of our perceptions. This is what appears when we dare to glimpse in the distorted mirror that the Armondo Iannucci Shows provide. Medieval mystic of numbers, a home for middle-aged men, the kitchen here is made of paper, thoughts on social inadequacy, knife attack reunions or the flight simulator. This is what makes it not just special but the best and most philosophical piece of satirical work of the last 20 years. A must see!

If you dare!
